my GP signed me off work for a month due to work related stress, after i sent it to my employer the nxt day i have been receiving emails from him on my personal email, also text messages. at the end of all messages he orders me to confirm receipt of the message. it has been a week that i am off sick and this is information that he has provided me:

1. not being paid in full - sickness payment 86 pound/week

2. he's going to call me every monday and thursday to check my well being (previous call he was asking me to think about if my stress is because of personal life instead of work)

3. without his agreement he doesn't allow me to go to the office: he has locked all my company accounts including email and IT facilities and also the pass accessing the company building

4. he's going to conduct an interview at the end of my sickness period, and carry out a new role for me

 

i feel like being treated like a dog, he's messages have very threatening tone. I feel he is not supporting my recovery at all but harassment. Or this should be a normal procedure for all one month sick leaves?

What does your contract entitle you to ?

 

2. he's going to call me every monday and thursday to check my well being (previous call he was asking me to think about if my stress is because of personal life instead of work)

 

This may well be adding to your stress - I am not sure if employers are allowed to do this, I am sure others with more experience in this area will advise further.

 

3. without his agreement he doesn't allow me to go to the office: he has locked all my company accounts including email and IT facilities and also the pass accessing the company building

 

If you are off sick, why would you want access to company accounts, email and IT stuff, anyway? I am not sure you should be concerned about this.

 

4. he's going to conduct an interview at the end of my sickness period, and carry out a new role for me

 

I think this is standard practice when someone has been off sick for a while. As you are off sick with "work related stress", then it could be a different role in the company would help reduce this.

 

i feel like being treated like a dog, he's messages have very threatening tone. I feel he is not supporting my recovery at all but harassment. Or this should be a normal procedure for all one month sick leaves?

 

I am sure others will offer more advice soon :)

thanks for your advice, to answer your question 3, i have been purchasing items for the company with my own credit card and now is 1000 pounds in credit that it is creating stresses for myself not having it paid to the bank. i raised with him to say i need to access the system to do this claim but he replied me saying he doesn't allow me to access anything.

I would suggest you write to him regarding the purchase of items from your personal credit card and ask the money is repaid immediately.

 

If this were me, then I would not want him telephoning me and would insist he didnt. I cant see that he has any right to demand that you respond to his emails either.

 

I have sent an S.O.S out on your behalf for others to respond to your thread :)

Hello!

 

Your manager is entitled to make reasonable contact to check progress and see how he can help you back to work.

 

I suggest

1. send a copy of the receipts you have paid by credit card and ask for immediate payment

 

2. re: what looks like harassment while you are off - how long have you worked there, are you a member of the union? I would suggest you will be happy to see an occupational health specialist of his choice while you are off if he is not satisfied with your GP reports.

 

3. You are off ill. It's not required for you to access work emails. So don't worry about that.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Hi thank you for your suggestions, i feel a lot better now.

 

To answer your 2nd question: i ve been working there for 18 months, what i find harassing is that he contently send me text messages and emails to my personal account talking about my sickness procedures and company policies also order me to reply him during the last 10 days of my sick leave. I am currently not a member of union(regretted..), as you say i do have the feeling he is going to be asking me to see a specialist he by his arrangement. I can understand me not to access email, but he also blocked my access to the office, is that a bit too much? he didnt do this to other members while they were on maternity/sickness leave..

why do you need access to the office? You don't. So please stop worrying about it.
