I have been told that I face 'management action' for exceeding the acceptable level of sickness under my works attendance management policy (6 days per year) following a period of 1 months sickness with clots in my left leg. This was fully certified by my GP. For 2 weeks of this period I was stuck abroad and unable to fly home for safety reasons and because I was too unwell. Although this action is not part of the formal discipline procedure it is a forerunner to formal proceedings. I am likely to be set an 'action plan' which will stipulate that I must endeavour to get my sickness within the acceptable levels. I don't see that I can agree to this. I have been sick twice in the last 3 years with clots and although I am now on warfarin I can't be expected to predict what is going to happen. I do also suffer from the less extreme symptoms of the syndrome. My argument is that my employers should be making reasonable adjustments as per the Equalities Act as this is a long term condition. I don't see how they can simply put me in the same box as people going off sick with minor ailments.
