Hi guys on the 22nd/10/2014 i sustained an injury at work hurting my shoulder and knee, i have carried on working due to the fact i have no holidays to take to get to my gp,, i completed an accident form then 1 week later emailed my manager to see if he had seen it, at which he replied no, ( no further discussion has been made ) until today i worked all day through my breaks to then travel the 45 miles back home and make my late appointment with my gp.

He wants me to go back next week drain the blood from my knee administer a cortisone injection in it and also put cortisone in my shoulder. if it does not cure my shoulder then an ultrasound and possible keyhole to fix the problem.

 

He advised rest but i told him its xmas i cant miss the pay and work has told me i will already be on a disciplinary as it is because i have had 5 days off in 12 months,

 

The doctor said well its my own choice that's his advice, i then went and told my manager what was happening for him to then say i cant attend work, as the doctor had advised i rest, no sick note issued mind.

i told him well no one has give a stuff since the 22nd Oct so i can keep working now, but he is now adamant i cant work and i should travel the 45 miles to work tomorrow and call him once there for a meeting, even though it will then take him 2 hrs to travel up to the depot. i told him i have made changes to my vehicle now so it makes it easier on me while i mend but alas he is making me stop work,.

So my question after all that is, if i feel ok to carry on and the doctor has not signed me as unfit for work can i still work....

Besides no body cared about it for the last 5 weeks or so.

Little confused here If you have not been signed off work, then on what grounds is your manager refusing to allow you to fulfill your terms of employment?

 

A GP note is only an adviser as the GP does not know what the employer can do to support your attendance. However, you were not given one.

 

Threatening disciplinary due to time off due to an injury at work is prejudging and in my opinion bullying.

 

I just don't understand why your boss is refusing your return to work unless you gave him something to be worried about and he is covering his back?

 

Go back to your GP get him to do a fit note go through the return to work process and if they take you down the disciplinary route dispute it and take someone in with you who can provide support.

 

I hope I read this right if not forget what I have written above.

 

Regards Bill

Hi Bill the disaplinary is for a previous 5 days off. My employer is saying they are looking after my welfare, even though they have let me work for the last 4/5 weeks with the injury. But now its been diagnosed that i have injured myself and not pulling a fast one.

Its damage limitation i think today i sat in my wagon for 5 hrs before being sent home. Not to return until fit note taken in.

perhaps an insurance issue?

 

My thoughts exactly, and maybe an insurance claim :-D

 

As for the disciplinary i'd love to see that one played out :whoo:

If they have suspended you from work for illness reasons that is up to them as long as they are paying you. If they are not going to pay you then that will give them all sorts of problems. I would be getting all of these managerial chats in writing and then get them read by both your doctor and a legal rep as it looks like you have 2 battles to fight.
