she has worked there for 3 years and is entitled to 6 weeks sick leave
she had time off last February, 2013 because of her asthma and was paid full pay. In September she was off again with same problem was paid in full but in October without notice they deducted over £770 and when questioned they said she has used all her sick entitlement which is on a 6 month rolling basis which meant she wouldn't be entitled to any more paid sick leave until February this year. She has had 3 weeks off in March/April due to a hospital stay but she delivered her sick notes and was paid in full in March. Today she should have had her normal wage but they have deducted over £1150 which doesn't even equate to the 3 weeks she has had off officially or the 2 weeks in January they mistakenly have on record. When she questioned them this morning they said they had overpaid and had deducted it due to her having 2 weeks off in February which she has evidence to prove she wasn't off. Her wage slip was the only one missing today, everybody has theirs. The stress from this has affected her and the last straw was the missing wage slip as she has no idea what has been deducted, she doesn't even know if statutory sick pay is included which it clearly hasn't due to the amount actually paid into her account. She walked out of the building to calm down and her supervisor said he thought it best she go home but HR have said that if leaves early it is misconduct!
