when can i expect a response?
not sure what you mean?
no we do not have an occupational health specialist. we are only a small firm. myself and six employees. can i nominate a doctor and does she have to accept? if so when should i ask for a second opinion, I suspect she may respond that I am puting her under more stress!
I am concerned that the sick notes received merely state "stress - work related"
this could go on for a long time.
I have said that when she returns we will moniter the situation and
have even offered to swap her work station.
I do not know what is a reasonable period to allow before asking
for a second opinion or should I ask her to provide a more detailed
analysis from her own doctor?
