HT tells staff governor there must be a further meeting to discuss their return to work and told not to return to work until this meeting is held .Can the staff Governor still attend Governor meetings while not attending work? thank you

    You are signed off from your job as a teacher. Your role as governor is different and it doesn't mean you are too ill to go to a governors meeting. It depends on why someone is signed off of course, but if for example someone is signed off with work related stress then the the illness relates to the stress of the teaching job and unlikely to be relevant to being a governor, any more than say it would stop them attending a parents evening for their own child. The decision whether you are well enough to attend governors meetings is solely a decsion for you to take, it isn't any business of the head's.
     
  4. I don't claim to be an HR expert, but I suppose if the staff governor has been signed back to work, is available to work and merely awaiting the formal meeting with the head to arrange the details there is no reason s/he could not attend a governing body meeting.
