    Default Employer OH vs GP

    Having been of work for 2 months with depression (GP sick note states this) following a work OH assessment, I've been called in for a capability meeting.

    The OH Dr believed due to "depression" I'd be better off back in work, therefore, he stated to my employer I'm fit for work.

    I've spoken to my GP about this, my GP disagrees, currently, my GP advice, I'm still not fit for work.

    Who takes precedence with my employer, the OH Dr who stated I'm fit for work, or my GP who states I'm not fit for work?

    Did you authorise OH to discuss with your GP?

    Your GP's sign off takes precedence in the sense of entitlement to statutory sick pay, but being signed off doesn't stop your employer starting sickness capability proceedings in line with their sickness absence policy. And ultimately they could dismiss you although it sounds as if there's a way to go before it got to that point.

    Maybe if you had they'd have come to the same conclusion!

    Technically your employer can ignore both as its advice. The test is when it gets to ET but action to avoid that is good. Have you been for a chat with your boss?

    you are allowed to suggest it yourself!

    Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!
