Phased return to work

    It is usual for schools to allow people who have been off sick for a long while a "phased return to work." I had one after a heart attack for example.
    The logic is simple. The school is getting a part time teacher for exactly the same money as they would have to pay if the member of staff simply remained off sick.
    And yet a private school "somewhere in Sussex" has the bloody cheek to insist that someone on a phased return to work has reduced salary...i.e less than they would get if they simply remained off sick for a little longer instead.
    And with the government red hot in pursuit of privatisation it makes you wonder if our conditions of service will deteriorate as a result.


  2. Exactly the kind of left-wing nonsense that nice Mr Cameron wants to do away with. If you are off sick then you should be starved back to work. We are all in this together.
