My wife, was due to go into hospital for an op. She had high blood pressure due to work related stress. she had to be signed off on the sick to reduce her blood pressure to have the op. The day before she was due to return to work, she received a call from work, don't come in your suspended. A number of vague allegations she denies. She was too stressed to attend a disciplinary and the first was postponed. The manager then started writing saying due to allegations he was going to press ahead with a hearing. we contested. we believe they are in breach of their own discipline procedures and also they took evidence anonymously from 2 colleagues who wanted to remain anonymous and then decided they were happy to sign a statement as long as they did not have to be in her presence.
