Could anyone please help with some general employment law?
I have recently told my employers with whom I have been with for 30 years that I have been diagnosed with MS. Have only had 2 days officially off sick since ms diagnosis. I know and company know that my working day is affected by my ms (can only walk so far and/or fatigue sets in.
it is a small company and my sales manager job involves me driving or catching a train to London to see customers. My employers are situated about 120 miles from home and I do not go to an office, maybe once every 3 months I go to company head office. The company has no trade union presence and I am not in a union.
I had the other day an informal meeting with my manager/company director at his request. He said that, only though when we met in london away from office, it was mainly for health and safety reasons. Also briefly touched on potential amendments to job. No occupational health health person was involved, the company does not have any employed
I was never advised in advance of the intended discussion agenda for this meeting, should I have been? Neither was I told that if I wanted I could have someone with me, should I have been given this option? What can and can’t they do or insist on please and what should I be looking out for and aware of?
