Dear all. I had taken a few days off sick. When I returned to work I was summoned to the heads office for a return to work meeting even though my line manager was absent from school. He was allowed to have a person in the room to safeguard himself but I was not given the same privilege. The head bombarded me with personal questions stating what was the nature of your absence, when did you see the doctor, what medication are you on etc. Even though the school policy clearly states that there is no need for a doctors ceritificate if are are absent for seven days I was still asked to supply one because my absence was considered suspicious. Reason being that I had sent an email on Wednesday morning stating that I would not be in school, however the head claimed that I sent it the night before. Could someone advise me on whether I should get the union involved even though I am considering leaving the school anyway?
