Just looking for a quick survey for those on here who are employed, (self employed don't count).
My employer has stated that they would like to introduce what they call a work back/pay back scheme for un-certified/self certified sickness, which basically means that for every day of sickness that you have you either have to give back one days pay or leave or come in and work on one of your days off.
Now i have canvassed my friends and haven't found anyone whose employers do anything similar at all, nor have any of them either heard of such practices, many questioned the legality of it.
Naturally senior managers within the organisation i work for are all for it, going as far as telling us that it is being widely intoduced in the private sector (I work in the public sector).
Be interested to hear from anyone who has this at their work. Thanks.
