Re: Have to agree with you
6 months sick leave, return for 6 weeks resets the clock, another 6 months
Also they get paid full overtime, on the basis that, even though there was no overtime, if there had been they would have done the work anyway
My partner works for the local Constabulary, as support staff. Her sickness policy states that three instances of sickness in a 12 month period starts a stage 1 disciplinary procedure. This includes single days. She is prone to serious sinus infections, so this presents a problem, and causes a lot of stress for her.
She previously worked for the courts (i.e. Civil Service), where the policy was similar, and for a charity that supports victims of crime. Their policy was even more draconian.
I call bullshit.
