Hi, This is the first post i have ever made and would like to know other peoples opinion, (who are going through the same stress and worries as i am)
HISTORY - I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2009 and underwent a mastectomy and reconstruction using my back muscle, I returned to work in mid Dec 2009, with them knowing that i would be requiring further surgery.
I work for a Large company, who class themselves as being a "People Company" On my return i recieved a letter from my works under there "company procedures", stating that my sickness was "Unacceptable" and further absent would "Result in the company taking further action", which for information may result in dismissal!
I am now off work again, due to having further surgery, so i am now worrying that i may not even have a job for long when i do return, this in turn i feel is slowing my healing progress as i am worried about everything,
Am i wrong to think this is a disgusting way to treat people. I think it is bullying and threatening, almost to the point that i would have to resign from my position or face disciplinary action! I am thinking of taking legal action and possibly exposing my so - called "People Company" to the press for what they really are!
I would be interested in anyone's opinion,
Best wishes to everyone.
