    Bad news today......

    I had a letter from work today(I only work Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon)telling me that I have been dismissed for 'Medical Capability' in other words absenteeism.....I had 1 day for a wisdom tooth taken out,11 days with a broken rib,and 3 days after nearly chopping off my thumb.l've arranged to speak to a solicitor tomorrow as well as sign on.....haven't done that for a very long time!

    Sorry to hear that- were your injuries sustained (wisdom tooth excepted ) whilst at work? If so you could have a claim against your employer and I might be wrong but I thought they had to consult with you to improve absenteeism before paying off- but your solicitor will be better placed to provide advice..

    In any event good luck with sorting it out one way or tother

    Take them for everything you can, if your on the sick with your sore paw you don't require to sign on .

    The citizens advice will give you free info before you head to a lawyer with a better knowledge of the situation.

    That sounds bloody ridiculous!

    How long have you worked there?

    Medical capability sounds far more like a clause for long term absence or disability. Did they actually carry out any form of medical examination, or are they using a scoring system like Bradford?

    Regardless,solicitor sounds the way, have you got any, ahem, "personal factors" that might explain the dismissal as discriminatory?

    you know, black, disabled, gay/bisexual? Don't knock the prospect of having recently come out as being the last one
