Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you. How long has your daughter worked for her employer?
Hi Jenny, since March this year
what has been the reason for the sickness?
Stress/anxiety and bereavement
Is it the first occassion that she has suffered from this kind of issue?
It is with this employer, she was diagnosed in April this year with ADHD/Aspergers
Ok thank you. Is her employer aware of this?
I mean the diagnosis?
Yes she verbally informed him at the time and has since given him paperwork describing symptoms etc
Ok thank you. Has she been paid ssp in respect of the time off?
Hi has the abuse been connected with her disability?
By that I mean the ADHD Aspergers?
Last week during their phone conversation he said she didnt have adhd/aspergers because people with 'that' dont bond with other people and dont go out!
Your daughter is being discriminated against. She has can resign during her sick leave and can also bring a claim against her employer of Direct Discrimination. She should see someone for advice on this as she should raise a grievance and claim, there is a 3 month time limit on bringing a claim. She should not be treated in this way at work. She also can claim unlawful deduction from wages in respect of the failure to pay SSP.
Thankyou for your help
No problem please do remember to rate my answer and do come back to me in the future if you need to.
Sorry Jenny can she do a Notice to leave straight away?
yes she wont be paid her notice if she does that though.
Yes I realise that but its a small price to pay to get her away from the situation, thanks again
No problem I am horrified that she has been treated this way. She is entitled to compensation so you should consider a claim.
Yes so am I, I just wasnt sure where to go or what to do but now I know shes entitled to something I will definitely follow your advice. Who do I contact re a claim though?
Hi you can contact a local lawyer, most offer a free initial consultation. Did you get my message earlier?
Not sure which message?
The one about the phone call tomorrow?
