Avoiding the unwanted side effects of calling in sick

When retail supervisor Madeleine got a telephone call at work that all working parents dread…she could never have imagined what was to follow.

It’s fair to say that there can be some uncertainty for employers when it comes to considering reasonable adjustments for an employee suffering with depression.

Pay attention to every survey with a health warning and you will be afraid to do many things – and you can now add going to work and sitting at a desk to that list.

The number of workers suffering from work-related stress remains a growing concern for employers. It is thought many factors such as job cuts, financial worries, poor management and bullying are to blame.

It’s not uncommon to hear an employee complain of feeling ‘stressed out’ at work.

It can be a throwaway, flippant comment at times uttered without a second thought about the real impact of stress.

Managing a disability caused by depression is a challenge that employers should be ready and prepared for.

A government-backed initiative to get employees back to work after illness or injury should be fully operational before the end of the year.

It is that time of year when employers need to be fully prepared for the flu season which can be bad for business.

A top employment judge is calling for a change in the law that would allow overweight employees to sue for ‘fattist’ discrimination. Being overweight, or even obese, is not in itself a prohibited ground of discrimination in UK law.

What an amazing team. I recently found myself on suspension after a call of mine was monitored by the company I work for. I felt at the time that it was unfair and did acknowledge the mistake straight away.

From a very horrible 2 years of grievances with my work manager and work place of 10 years. I unfortunately was left at a dismissal hearing with no representation or Union member to help me show and explain my side of the issues involved.
