    hypothetical question.

    Is someone able to be on paid sick leave with symptoms of "anxiety" or "stress" with one employer and work in a similar role with another employer?

    It raises the question of whether should be off sick.

    Sack em

    They have declared to the employer that they are unfit for work but proving they are fit for work by actually going to work :confused::confused:

    You lot that are defending this action in any shape or form are going soft
    Bring back national service that's what I say :eek::eek:

    No-one has defended it. Alan1302 and I have firmly said that it's not acceptable, Newchodge has sat on the fence and Ximena Rodriguez was just post count padding

    If, for example, the cause of the absence is a broken leg and both jobs involve manual work it is completely unacceptable.

    If the cause of the absence is work-related stress, and the cause is the workplace, rather than the work, and if the employment contract does not prevent the employee working elsewhere, then, it is probably OK. The medical note means that the individual is not fit to work at that workplace, not that they are unfit towork in any workplace.

    As a corrollary, if the employee has a broken leg they are not fit to work in their driving role, but are perfectly able to do their call centre job.
