    Im going to be dismissed due to ill health after a long period of sickness and I’ve no idea how the process works and how long it takes. I know the school has to follow strict procedures but are there meetings involved? What are the steps? I wondered if anyone had been in the same position and could offer some advice and guidance? Thank you!

    Hopefully your union is involved as they should give you the best advice

    Yes, your union is best placed to tell you what happens in your school. Although procedure is similar in most school (and employers generally) each decides its own detailed policy and procedures.

    Get hold of a copy of your school's Sickness Absence Policy. The procedure should be outlined in there.

    Brilliant thank you. Yes the union is involved which is good and I will get hold of a copy of the policy. I just wanted a rough idea of how it may work? I feel I’m always badgering my union rep with questions!

    That's what you pay your union fees for!

    Good luck.

    It is worth pointing out that, if you are under Burgundy Book conditions, you get full pay for your contractual notice period. I think that means payment until 31 August if you are given notice by 31 May and 31 December if it is between then and 31 October. This is regardless of whether you are still receiving sick pay.
