My partner (Violet) was dx in Jan, last week we were told, (in a letter! ) that she has PPMS. Since her diagnosis I have taken three days off work, one day after returning from the hospital at 6.30am after spending all the night there with her due to a UTI. Two more after similar instances. My question is, my employer has said that I would not be paid for this time off, I completly understand that and had not expected to be paid. He stated that although the time off was not for my personal sickness it would be counted as such on The Bradford scoring system they use to assess sick leave.
This is a huge worry for me, could anyone advise if they have had any experiences of this? Can they do this legally? We have no union so can't go down that route, I have tried to search the internet but there is so much conflicting advise I have just confused myself further!
Thank you for reading
