I am facing redundancy and work is including the time from when I collapsed, was administered 1st Aid and awaiting the ambulance as absence. I start work at 8.30am and the incident happened at 11.30am. the ambulance left the grounds at 12.50pm and I work until 3pm. However, work are including this as half a day's absence. Can they include the time an employee is on the premises? What about duty of care?

I would strongly recommend talking to your Union Rep or an employment lawyer.

If you are off sick, the company has to pay you Statutory Sick Pay.

I would think that they only need to pay you for the time that you were working. I agree that it sounds harsh that they won't pay you for the time you were incapacitated - but you really need to talk to a qualified employment professional.

what's your interest
