I'm on long term sick leave as a result of work-related stress and depression and am nearing the end of my 100 days full pay entitlement. I have seen in the STPCD that if you are absent following an 'industrial injury' you are entitled to 6 calendar months full pay before your 100 days full and 100 days half pay entitlement begins. Some of the unions state that psychological injuries fall under this entitlement. Does anyone have any experience of this? Should this have been determined at the beginning of my sick leave or can I pursue this now? How can this be proven - will a letter from my doctor be enough to confirm that my current ill health is as a direct result of my work situation? Any comments, experiences or advice would be very welcome. Thank you!
