Sick note but not accepted in Employment and minimum wage problems Posted May 6 Quick background info, I was agency staff with the company from March 2021 became a full time member of staff Jan 2022 so had to do probation of 6 months again (so still in probation) My partner was taken ill start of April but I had holidays so these were used while they were in hospital, discharged but still under a different hospital during to potentially having cancer. I have not been to good mentally with it all, so was signed off from April 26th till May 25th, due to being on probation I was told if I did not return to work by 11th May they would potentially terminate my employment, so I was forced back in to work. (They really drive it in that after 14 days sick I would most likely be sacked as on probation ) I'm now having a meeting due to taking 5 days sick and either terminating my employment or extending my probation. I have never had sick before, done all the overtime, trained new Staff, gone well over targets needed, was assured I would be of probation sooner but now all this which is out of my control is telling me different!! Were do I stand with it all, i have a very ill partner and 4 children I'm trying my best to hold it all together but this is not helping.
