Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Is the employer still proceeding with the capability procedure?
You should not fear reprisal for telling your employer you are off sick with work-related stress. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and related statutory instruments impose a general duty on employers to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all their employees. This includes a duty to undertake risk assessments and manage activities to reduce the incidence of stress at work. In addition, under common law an employer owes a duty of care towards its employees, the breach of which can amount to negligence.
No not necessarily, that will try and identify if there are any issues affecting you that they could perhaps assist with, it should go under their duty to look after your health and safety so if that assessment identifies any specific issues that they have control over they would be expected to deal with them as necessary
Unless you raise the issues you are going through, it may not give them a chance to try and deal with them, although try and be diplomatic rather than just pointing your finger at them. This should be dealt with separately to the capability procedure anyway
you are welcome, all the best with this
