  1. If a couple have a joint JSA claim and the one who doesn't sign on (i.e not the lead claimant) goes abroad for a few weeks does this trigger migration to UC, either on leaving or returning?
  2. Thank you for your time and advice. We're looking for some general advice on this issue regarding my partner who is off work with depression caused by her workplace. The employer has told us they will visit this Thursday to "discuss her absence". Here's a bit of the back story: Mt partner is a Cleaner. She is off work due to depression, this was caused by her undergoing treatment for recurring miscarriages and her Manager moving her from a job she was happy in to another part of the company where it is very quiet, no interaction and a totally different world than where she had bee
  3. Please can anybody advise how i can start a CCJ thread? i really need help but not sure how to post my story on here
  4. My wife is employed in the public sector at a school. She has a term-time contract (fixed hours per week, employed over 2 years). Recently she collapsed at work as she was being bullied by her line manager. She was advised by her doctor to take the rest of the week off work, which she did (self-certified). These events were reported in writing to the employer, and my wife returned to work. Related to the stress illness, her mother, who lives in a developing country (where my wife comes from), has become quite severely ill, and has lost lots of weight, and may die sometime in the

  6. Hi. I posted something about this in the employment forum but it was suggested I post it here. Things are pretty much the same but my query has changed a bit. I hope somebody can help. I've worked for my firm for less than a year and went sick in January 2016. I have gone from being sick with flu etc to being off work through stress. This has gone on for three months. The firm said that I wasn't meeting my objectives and so on - long story but essentially they said I would lose my job. In December my boss said HR would write to me (me thinking this is it, job gone) and after that I
  7. Dear All My wife works for a local authority, in a school, as a midday supervisor. It has just been half term but prior to this she was off for two days due to sickness. Also, when my wife was due to return to work, I was rushed into hospital, in an ambulance, with chest pains. Fortunatley it was not a heart attack. However due to test etc my wife was up all night at the hospital and as a result not fit to go to work. The business manager has now sent her a text saying that the need a sick note as she has been off for two days before half term then a day after. Is this correct
  8. Hi all, I've been asked to go to a disciplinary on Monday: This is part of the letter emailed to me, I've accepted the meeting but now I want to refuse it. -------------------------------- Evidence of this is a Bradford factor score (based on absences in the last 12 months) of 238. You have reached this score following a 5 day absence in February 2014 and then 4 short term absences in the past 6 months – August 8th – Migraine September 10th – Sickness December 8th – Cold/flu January 18th – Stomach ache/sickness -------------------- 1. The bradford score he's wo
  9. Hi, I am currently being taken to a disciplinary at work for absences at work. I have had time off last year to look after my wife when she was having a bad pregnancy following us miscarrying previously in the past, this is why we had been in and out of hospital prior to our daughters birth. once our daughter was being born i had to use my holidays for paternity leave as i was not entitled to paternity leave with pay at the time. After the birth my wife came down with very bad postnatal depression which she has been under her GP for and on medication to aid in her dealing with it. work h
  10. Hi Everyone, Apologies for jumping straight on here with a problem I am after some advice/guidance/help. Back Story (quick) I am an employee of COMPANY as a delivery driver (yes I do make sure someone is in before leaving a card). In January 2013 I fell and hurt my back whilst at home. I was in a lot of pain both in my back and sciatic pain in my leg. After several weeks off work I was referred to a specialist who arranged an MRI. The MRI took place in May 2013 and it was found that I had two disc bulges in my lower back, most probably caused by the nature of my work. I was
  11. I am after advice on what I should expect from my employer and what they should expect from me. I do not wish to name my employer or the occupational health provider as anyone at my employers who may come across this forum would easily be able to identify who I am and I wish to avoid aggravating the situation by bringing the name of my employer into disrepute. The basics of the issue are that approximately three months ago I was the victim of a road rage attack that left me with damage to my sight in one eye. Part of the damage is permanent but is unlikely to cause serious long ter
  12. Hi Everyone. I came home yesterday to find a hand delivered letter from Equita saying the bailiff will attend my house in 24hours. If i do not pay the outstanding amount in full and cleared funds, he will attend my house and MAY remove goods in my absence which they tell me will be distressing. I have been reading on here what to do and i have requested the information from the Council regarding the Liability order they got in Court. First i knew of this was yesterday, surely i must have received a summon or something? But nothing. The CT was applied when i w
  13. Hi, I'm trying to get some historical absense records from my previous employer. I started working there late 2007 so the time is well within limitations. I've written to them twice asking for all dates, times and copies of all of the medical notes they got when I was ill. I even enclosed, on 3 occasions, a £10 postal order, for the SAR costs. On all 3 occasions they've ignored my letters, and on all 3 occasions, I've confirmed the postal orders were cashed. What would you recommend I do to get these records? It seems there was a housing benefit discrepancy which I need to sort
  14. help or advice much needed....... i work 16hrs per week but started off at 40hrs per week 3yrs ago..... due to work related injury and time off for surgery, i had to be moved to another dept on doctors recommendation and he had to write to my employers to request this because the occupational health lady refused to contact him saying " he just wants a big fee from us for writing a letter, all we need is your story and i take notes"..... Anyways, i got moved to another dept which happened to be chilled where i am up and down a stool for four hours stretching to back of shelves etc..
  15. If an employee with IBS is constantly absent from work, is it justifiable to discipline them, taken into consideration that all other employee's in the company are currently being disciplined for their absence. The DDA specifies that you cannot treat that employee less favorably than any other employee in the company, however this employee has been treated more favorably than any other employee, is it justifiable to discipline the employee with IBS. In the past 6 months the employee has had 24 periods of absence totaling 94 days, the company feel they cannot sustain this level of ab
  16. Hello, I am a new user. I hope someone can help as I have a court hearing early November. I stopped paying my Credit Cards middle of 2010 after I lost my job. I could not reach an agreement with the Credit Card companies to pay a smaller repayment until I find a new job. Few months later, I was getting letters and calls from different Debt Collection Agencies. I ignored their letters and phone calls till they stopped. Earlier this year, a man came to my door and asked of me. My brother opened the door as I was not in as he was here on holiday from abroad. He asked the man who he was and
  17. Hey everyone, I was hoping someone could give me a bit of advice (that I can give to my parents). My younger brother and sister were absent from school for the last 3 days of the term in July (2 and a half really as the school closed at 12pm on the last day), because they and my parents went down south for a few days. This was the only time they were able to get off work and the only time they could afford to go away (they've had a pretty rough year and haven't had a real break in God-knows how long). They submitted a holiday form to the school, and were never told that they wer
  18. Hi, I did a really stupid thing about 4 years ago. I wasnt in a very good place at the time. I was caught with a childs ticket before boarding the train. When questioned by the ticket inspector I panicked having never done anything like this before. I didnt know my new address at the time, the ticket inspector came down on me like a ton of bricks and to be honest I was very scared of him and the situation I found myself in. I gave him my name and date of birth and my old address I had no forms of ID appart from a medical note which had my details on it. He took the ticket off me and told
  19. Hi all Quick background to this problem: I received a letter in May this year from the Director of my department related to my sickness absence which has been quite high due to a history of stress and depression. In this letter he stated: "You need to be aware if you have two periods of absence in the next six months (prior to the 23rd November 2012) you will trigger a Capability Hearing which may result in the termination of your contract" I'm currently on sick, and have been for 2 weeks - what started initially as Gastroenteritis has overlapped into a respiratory inf
  20. Hiya all. Just after a little but of info. My company operates a policy of if you have 3 periods of absence in a rolling 6 month period then you are issued a verbal warning. Unfortunately, I was off for 2 days in November (11th and 12th) and again in January (25th) and again on the 14th of this month (May 14). On the face of it, it seems I am likely to receive a verbal warning. However, am wondering as it's a rolling 6 month period so 6 months from 12th Nov is the 12th of May and my 3rd period of absence was from the 14th (so 2 days after) does this mean it is outside the
