My husband suffered an injury at work in October. He has been unable to work since and has recieved SSP which will run out this week.His employers (a public school) have not accepted liability for the accident and to be honest have been quite nasty. He works 3 days a week as a general maintenance man. He read somewhere that he could have holiday pay rather than SSP so he asked for 2 days from last year and 4 days accrued for this year. He received the following reply. Holiday entitlement can be requested at anytime during the holiday year but it is the employers decision when it can be taken. It would be quite unusual to pay holiday entitlement unless the contract has come to an end when we would of course factor in any accrued holiday not taken' Is this true? I cant see any reason for refusing other than making life difficult for us.
Hello I got some great help from this forum last year and really hope that some one can help me again this time around. Briefly, I have been on long term sick for a few years due to major depression and social phobia. My job was a big contributor and in May this year they offered me a "negotiated exit/settlement" seeing as I was still unfit for work and in the meantime have kept paying me occupational sick pay. However, we are now in December and they are still dragging their feet. I agreed in writing to this negotiated exit in May, but have nothing in writing from them with the details, and last month I was instructed to put in writing that I wanted a negotiated exit (despite agreeing to the one they proposed in May!!) Now, more than 6 months later, I have been for an interview for a completely different, less stressful job with fewer people which means that even though I still struggle with big groups, it wouldn't be anything like dealing with the minimum 100 people every minute of my "current" job (that I haven't been able to attend in years.) Thing is, what happens now to the settlement from the negotiated exit and the occupational sick pay? Do I inform my employer and if so can they withdraw the offer? I have the feeling that they are up to something given that I've had to put it in writing twice about the negotiated exit in totally different ways. I would imagine occupational sick pay will stop even though this job is unrelated and for less than half the number of hours. I still have a sick line from my doctor stating that I'm unfit for that job as well as psychologist reports stating how much I struggle with groups of people and stress. Any help, advice or info is greatly appreciated so that I have even a rough idea what I am doing until I can speak to Citizen's Advice (And sorry about this being rather long )
