Hello xoxo I have just been given a letter from work saying that I have been put on sick watch because I have had 4 periods of sickness last year and that if I have any periods of sickness this year they will have to take action? I like many do not have an official diagnosis of lupus rather undifferentiated mixed connective tissue disease and I have coeliac. I am really annoyed because I was made to take time off work by my manager even though I felt well enough but he said that some people I work with felt I had been short tempered with them, I was extremely upset as feel I did nothing wrong I even asked the people I work closely with and they had no complaints about me. Anyway I don't know where I stand with my rights and since we have converted to an academy things have gone from bad to worse so I want to make sure I know what they can and can't do? I would ask my union rep but as he was one of the people who complained I don't feel able to, any help or advice would be great thanks in advance x
