Hi guys looking for some advice.
My wife has works for a large UK supermarket and has worked there for 26 years. She was off for a day last week, with a sickness bug. She received a letter yesterday inviting her to attend a "disciplinary meeting" to discuss her absence as she has been off 3 times in the past 9 months. On one of these occasions she was admitted to hospital for 3 days
My understanding is that the meeting should only be an informal meeting to establish the facts and if appropriate then arrange a disciplinary meeting
She is taking along a colleague to the meeting , but should this be a "disciplinary meeting". When she has been off from work she has advised her work before her shift and has received the relevant return to work interviews
