Hi I have been with my firm for nearly 5 years. We have just gone through the redundancy procedure and i was not on the list. I was told that i would be safe - i work for the owner in administation. I had an operation on my face and was due to be off for 2 weeks recovery but due to complications i was signed for another 2 weeks. Before going off for the operation i was told i would be paid for my time off; i have letters from my surgeon/consultant and certificates from my doctor. I was phoned today to say i have now been put in a poole of redundancies and they don't know if they will be paying me for my sickness..... can they do this?
