But being off sick means being off sick.
How do you know he received a wage? He could have got just government paid sick pay.So, let me just process this one...
He was off on sick leave due to illness, he was spotted during that period of sick leave at a pub/social club and was sacked because of this?
He then wins a court case for unfair dismissal.
If I've understood that correctly, then I don't see what his employer did wrong. He was on sick leave, so he was still employed and receiving a wage for that time off.
My only issue is, why was he sacked and not given a written warning? Unless he was on what do they call it, probation period?
You mean they can remove the £65 they get for doing a minimum of 37 hours a week?But being off sick means being off sick.
If he was receiving sick pay and he felt better, he should've notified his employer.
It's like informal carers e.g. family members, they can receive Carer's Allowance, carers can do what they do in normal life but if they don't do the 'caring' bit, they can have their Carer's Allowance stopped.
Similarly, if a person with COPD is seen sparking up outside a social club and they're off sick, they aren't doing the 'being sick' bit and therefore should be sanctioned. However, does that mean being sacked?
If you do less than 35hrs of caring they can stop it, there are also rules about education which I find a bit unfair because there are bound to be people who study but who also care for someone for over 35hrs a week. Anyway, I'm going off topic now 🙃You mean they can remove the £65 they get for doing a minimum of 37 hours a week?

Not that I'm a sensitive little soul, but what on earth is that message all about.
