Good morning, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. I am sorry to hear about your circumstances, can you provide me some further background infromation so that I can best advise you?
Can you provide a suitable time to call you?
Thank you for the confirmation, I will call you shortly.
If you can attach a copy of the contract, or a photo of the clause relating to the company sick pay I will be happy to assist you further.
Thank you for the attached, as discussed the company sick pay is discretionary therefore it will be difficult to establish that the employer is in breach of contract.
However that being said I would advise that you raise a formal grievance, the following link should assist you in raising a grievance: https://www.acas.org.uk/grievance-procedure-step-by-step/step-2-raising-a-formal-grievance
