Hello, I was diagnosed with depression (due to an assault) and anxiety 2 months ago (due to when I spoke up about it/going through the grievance procedure). I am now off work today I don't know for how long as I feel I may need a sick note but I am worried this will affect my work. I'm support staff but over these past few months have been hard and slt know I have depression and anxiety. I refused a 2 week sick note in December which my work are not aware of but took 2 days off instead. Upon my return I have not had a return to work meeting and slt only ask me how I am in passing in the corridor or if I am supporting a class. Like really?! You want me to say everything in 2 seconds? They might use the excuse that I didn't say anything before even though I mentioned the ignoring behaviour of some staff back in December and was told "as long as they're not saying anything that's the main thing'. Anyway, could they take action against me for not being in for a few days or 2 weeks??? I'm in 2 minds as to whether I should go back in a few days or after a few weeks. Also can I apply for jobs and go to interviews/accept jobs while I am off?
