    No mate, if your doctors signs you off theres nothing they can do unless you are hitting sickness triggers set out in your contract of employment! They can always of course have your cards maked for when you do return to work employers are not keen on the work shy!!!

    I was sacked once while off sick, they simply have to find something other than your sickness to use as an excuse.

    It's not easy for a company to sack an employee unless it's gross misconduct.

    If your on a sick note for 1 week or several months, they have no cause to sack you legally. Well they could but you could take them to the cleaners.

    If you havent done anything wrong, and your sickness is verified by the doctor, they have no grounds to sack you. Simples!

    i guess they could always claim that due to your injury you are not able to fulfil the duties as outlined in your job description, but if they did do it maybe you could claim constructive dismissal, as you are prepared to return to work, but on light duties etc. most employers would be understanding, sounds like yours isnt, which would make me, for one, start looking for a new employer.

    just to give you an example, my brother got a new job & literally after a week or 2 he started having seizures. he was signed off & had tests etc. his new employer couldnt have been better, they didnt let him go, laid on taxis to take him for tests & meetings at work, then he returned to work on a part time basis after a few months. now he is back working full time & is now fully on the payroll. so, you see, some employers are good, its just finding 1 in this economic climate.

    by the way, was the accident in your time or while at work? oops, just seen your post from october last year. my advice would be, if you think that they will let you go, make a claim for compensation, if youre gonna get your P45 anyway, take them for all theyre worth, thats why they have employers & public liability insurance.

    go for it, from reading your posts from last year, they sound like an accident waiting to happen, which in your case it did!

    have the HSE been involved? would be interesting to know whats going on with any investigations.

    i work for a big american company & their attitude to H&S is zero tollerance (they call it 'Beyond Zero'), cant even use a mobile phone with a handsfree earpiece or bluetooth earpiece while driving. they even want us to report 'near misses', only problem with that is the reporting system is so long winded you feel like 'whats the point?'
