During periods of paid sick leave employees are often called into work for interview with a manager. The interview for some becomes quiet distressing as the person is often put under pressure to return to work in some form or other.
Several issuses have been raised by employees:
If an employee was to claim compensation for sickness/injury could the employer contest the claim on the grounds that they were able to return to work?
If employee returns to work and thier condition was made worst and had to go on sick leave again how would this effect thier rights to paid sick leave?
If the employee’s GP has signed them as sick what rights has the employer to question this and seek a second opinion?
Can an employer put surveillance on persons on sick leave and then use it as disciplinary tool?
