For Ben Jones
It might help if I am more specific. I was suspended (on full pay) for 19 weeks during which time I became ill with the stress of it all, the case went to disciplinary where the outcome was 'no case to answer'. My statement at the disciplinary informed the panel how I had suffered through the process I submitted the doctors sick notes as evidence to this statement. I was asked at the end of the procedure to hand over the original documents. I returned to work shortly after which was 11 months ago. The problem has arisen as I have recently had surgery which resulted in me being on sick leave for 8 weeks. My employer insists that during my suspension I was classed as on sick leave which in effect means I have been on sick leave for 27 weeks taking me over the 6 months full pay entitlement
Interesting the HR manager has told my line manager that according to law I was off sick
