Well, to put it mildly I was most pissed off when my manager asked me to provide medical evidence that I was “competent” to do my job!!
The short form of the background is I suffered a major trauma 3 months ago. I have been working (excluding the 3 days following the trauma) at my usual capacity with no complaints raised by management. I then sought to take a week off, to try and rebuild myself (everyone was back from their leave and the office was quiet).
I was then asked for medical clearance to prove I could handle my job!! I have provided this, however am stung they even asked!! It really does open your eyes to how unsupportive employers can be when faced with bottom line over human compassion!!
