Ok last night after one too many beers Dh fell down the steps at front of our house and ended up in A&E as he was in pain with his ankle, few hours later was told it was just a sprain, use ice compress and rest it for 48 hours. so this evening he rang his boss (he is a lorry driver) and told him he couldnt come in tomorrow due to his injury. He was basically told he was lying and it was 'too convienient' and now they want proof about his ankle. Its only a sprain and the doc didnt give him a note or letter or anything and they wont write a sick note till after the 7 days self cert (he will be back in work monday) So how the hell is he suppose to prove to work that he was advised to rest it? They have basically told him to come in with proof on Monday or dont come back! Thanks in advance.
