Topic - Employment Law

GRUMPY MONKEY - on 19 Feb 2013
Looking for some employment law advice. I work for a local authority and have been off sick twice in past year with Flu and a virus. Provided employer with GP med cert on both ocassions. If illness is related to an underlying medical condition then employee is not subject to disciplinary. I have a sleep disorder and GP stated I am suseptible to viruses due to lowered immune system resulting from sleep disorder.

However employer states they do not accept that this is the case and that medical certificate is not suficient evidence, hence they are taking disciplinary action.

Anyone know anything about employers right to challenge a med cert and on what basis? And what would be considered sufficient evidence if a med cert is not sufficient. Any knowledge of law helpful. Thanks.
