Off Sick And Off For A Quick Drink, OK?
There has been considerable publicity recently about an employee who won at an Employment Tribunal after he was sacked for going to a pub when he was off sick.
So, does that open the door for you to do the same, after all if it’s OK for him, why not you?
The answer however is in the small print and it is NO you can’t.
The man in question won his claim of unfair dismissal, not because it was OK to go to the pub, but because his employers did not follow proper procedures.
