Hi All, My wife and I have the (mis) fortune of working for the Prison service. My wife is disabled and has worked in a low risk, category D prison since 2005. Her employers have been aware of her disability since her contract began. Aside from many other issues that are ongoing at the moment, I have one issue that I would greatfully like answered. My wife underwent surgery (Corrective) which is directly related to her disability and is classed as a serious underlying medical condition on the 4th Feb 2012. She was subsequently declared fit to return to normal duties (With some very reasonable adjustments that they still have not put in place) by 3 medical specialists on the 29th March 2012. One of these specialists was the OH doctor that the prison wanted her to see. Since that date the Governor has refused to allow her back to work despite being declared fit. The only reason he has given for this is that he wants to ensure her safety by considering the reasonable adjustments. At this moment I must point out that the reasonable adjustments were suggested by OH on two seperate previous OH reports requested by the prison following periods of sick for previous surgery relating to her disability. After all this time he has now set up a "capability hearing" which reading between the lines tells me that he is going to terminate her employment (for reasons that we are unsure of) To date he has refused to pay her since she was signed fit on the 29th and he took the dicision to order her not to attend work. Can someone please confirm that this is indeed wrong and the "Meikle Payment" applies to this case. Thank you for taking the time to read this and your anticipated assistance.
