I'm hoping someone can help me here. We have an employee that claims he hurt his back at work. No witnesses. He is at work but cliaming his doctor advised light duties and physiotherapy. He has a physio appointment early afternoon this week and states that he will not be able to return to work after as he should not remian still for up to 2 hours afterwards, including driving.
We've told him that if (as he says) he cannot do his full job description we need medical letters/notes to back this up and cannot take just his word for it.
He's now off to the union!
Can anyone advise me if we're doing the right thing/following the correct proceedure?
Thanks and rep added
