Signed off work, sick pay? watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    My doctor has signed me off work for a couple of weeks because I have an eating disorder and work was making me relapse and drop weight.

    Anyone know how long I can be off for and how much I'll get paid? Also can they sack me for being off?

    it's about £80 a week. You can't be sacked for being sick. (in some cases you can; but they have to justify this. Just being sick isn't one of them)

    You'll need to talk to your GP and work about how long you can be off work for.
