I’m currently signed off work until the end of term with WRS due to bullying. I have a new job for September. I got sent an email saying they had referred me to OH. No mention of any appointment, just the referral. Today, I got an email saying I didn’t attend an OH appointment yesterday and am being invoiced for the cost. £425! I read through his email again. No reference to an appointment anywhere apart from he had made a referral. The title of the email is ‘absence.’ It is a long email chain. At the bottom at the end of all the emails there is a little box with the attachment. Nowhere did the email indicate there was a letter or an appointment anywhere or that an appointment had actually been made. I have not received a letter in the post either. I have spoken to the union and they are going to discuss all of the issues with the school with me face to face. In the meantime, can anyone offer me advice for my email reply please? I don’t believe it’s reasonable to ask me to pay £425 for an appointment I was unaware of.
