My daughter is struggling with depression and anxiety, the

Customer Question

My daughter is struggling with depression and anxiety, the doctors have decided to change her tablets so shes been really struggling, because of this she has had to have time off work, on friday last week she had her final disciplinary for sickness, shes had no support from her manager and hes now said that if she has any illness within the next year she will be sacked. Is this realistic? Her last sick day was not even her fault, he changed the rota on a group chat, which my daughter didnt see so she didnt turn up as she thought she had the day off, he then put this down as sickness. Is he able to change a rota by WhatsApp with checking this is ok ?
Assistant: Was the disciplinary action discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?
Customer: Just with the manager in the store
Assistant: Does the workplace operate with employees, freelancers, consultants, contractors or with unionised employees?
Customer: Employees, she works for the coop
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I dont think so
