I suffer from osteoarthritis in my thumb.
I've just gone back to work after 4 weeks off due to hand surgery and I have an hospital appointment to see the hand therapist but my employer says I'm not allowed.
I've read that they can refuse drs, dentists and hospital appointments. ...as this is part of my recovery are they allowed to refuse me time off?.
I have no paid holidays left as I used them all for the recovery period after my op.
