I am currently on a stage 2 for my sickness due to my endometriosis and at the meeting where stage 2 was decided, ideas were raised as to what could be helpful to reduce my sick level etc...1 thing that was agreed was that as I work part time I could swap my working days, for example if I was too unwell to come in on Tuesday, come in and work the Thursday instead, I have had to do this on various occasions..but have always made sure my hours were made up, since the stage 2 decision I have had 1 day classed off as sick. The stage 2 monitoring period finishes at the end of beginning of August.
I get told today by my manager that I have to attend an 'informal' meeting with a senior manager to discuss my sickness, and told that I can contact my union if I wish (which I have done but so far haven't heard back yet), and when I received meeting request I saw a HR person was also named on there...if it's an informal meeting why are they bringing HR and advising me to contact the union??!!
And there was mention of sending me to occ health again, which was done last year...I don't know what to do, and am so so worried and scared that I'm going to lose my job!! I have been there for 7 years.
Just seems so unfair, I'm trying my best. In the past I have helped the business out by moving office and swapping my days and child care but seems that means nothing!
Please advise if u can.
Many Thanks for taking the time to read this xxx
