My wife has had a few sick instances recently - nothing too major but

one of these was due to a car crash she was involved in.



Anyway, she had a sickness interview at work, and has been told that

shes now 'banned' from overtime at work for 3 months. The overtime in

question is well paid (compared to the job!)



Shes not the only one in the department to suffer like this (About 1/3

of the staff are similarly banned).



Can an employer make up their own rules and punishments like this?

What is the cause of her sickness? If it is something that brings her within the DDA perhaps not.


If the contract makes it clear that the overtime is discretionary, then I reckon they can give this to who they want, provided that the reason for not giving it to others is not linked to a potential discriminatory reason e.g. bassed on race, sex, religion etc
