I had my OccH appointment yesterday and when my boss emailed it to me he also said we needed to have the meet to discuss and agree my phased return to work. Silly me thought that when he emailed me his plan and I said yes that looked good, that was it agreed. Plus it seems a bit late in the day to be having such a meeting. My sick line runs out on 21st and allowing for 2015 leave still to be taken, I will be back at work in afternoon of 11/1. Really don't know what else can be said about it. OccH says I'm covered be Equalities Act and recommended a risk assessment of my work roles. (As our desk is a the main door of the office we often get landed with some reception type work like taking in parcels etc and I can't carry heavy things. I need 2 hands to carry 4pt bottle of milk from the shop across the road.) I've been told I can have union rep or anyone else with me if I wish but I'm not in the union and can't think of anyone else available to come so will be going it alone. Hubby says if I feel uncomfortable with the way the meeting goes I should just halt and say I'm not going on without advice/representation.
So, are you guys up for double pocket duties on Friday morning. Mine is at 10.30am (so my time doesn't clash with Slosh). Could do with the support as its hard not to be anxious.
Do you think they might just retire me with a golden handshake?!!!
