  • Oh you poor thing, I'm sorry to hear this, I would check legally, I don't think they can sack you while your off sick, I hope things start to look up for you soon xxx

  • Thank you. Iv been on prostap for 6 months so it's not like iv had time off frequently. Prostap ran out in December and back came the pain n now this 😤 just hoping my consultant can sort me out n I can get on with finding other work.. As a mother of 4 havin no job is a massive downfall at the min xx

  • Hi T is right they cannot sack you whilst you are signed off sick . I really would seek legal advise as this is totally unfair. As if you're not suffering enough. When are you having the hysterectomy? Mine is on 3rd March.

  • I bet it is, I lost 2 jobs last year I was on 6 month probation for one and had to give the other one up coz I couldn't do it, I might have something that could interest you, I'll message you tomoz, are you under a bsge centre,

  • I'm going to see a solicitor this week. Im due to see my consultant on 29th jan and hopefully I will get a date.. Last time I seen him he said it was prostap then hystrectomy. Iv done the prostap n felt brill so next step is hystrectomy xx

  • Good for you! You need to take then to tribunal for your reference if nothing else. Good luck with the solicitor xx

  • If you have been there two years you can take them to a tribunal.

    Do they have hr you can go to ?

    did you have any warning as they can't sack you without having the conversation to pre warn you .

    go to citizens advice centre and look over your contract and sickness policy.


  • They can't sack you if you have a sick note.

  • Get some advice from a union or solicitor. I've had hell from my job about time off but when I saw occupational health they said my endo comes under the equalities legislation. Means you can take action if they sack you as its discrimination. X

  • Thank u ladies xx my situation is now being dealt with by a solicitor as they told me I have a case xx they say I can claim damages but at the minute it's not the money that's the issue its the fact of the way they did it xx hopefully all will be resolved xx
