    I have an employee who has worked for me for less than one year. She broke her ankle 6 weeks ago and said that she is going to be off work for another 2 months due to physiotherapy. This employee has been on social media posting videos of her out and about in a boot, walking, caring for her animals etc. She works 1 day per week and is employed in a clerical role, she is the only one who does this job so for now, the job is not being done. I have asked if she could work from home and I would cover all costs related to her doing her job from home. So far she has ignored me but messaged me about her pay etc since then. I believe this employee is planning to stay on sick leave for as long as possible and then leave as she was a pretty poor employee before breaking her ankle (which she done while she was "bed ridden" on a previous sick leave). Can I call her doctor and ask if she is able to carry out her duties at home? I see no reason why she can not do her job from home, it is all clerical and does not involve any one else. Thanks

  • BUSINESS QUESTION FOR CLASS?

    Best answer: That's a pretty tough one, not sure why the admin assistant would need to be explaining this to line managers though, that part of the exercise doesn't make sense.

    "I'm as good as you are..." That's how petulant this one sounds.

    As for your question itself, say something about coordination and efficiency. That being said, an admin assistant isn't as important as a line manager...office manager is something else entirely, but since they have manager in their job title, its easier to equate them with the line folks.

  • Is this a sign I may get a job offer?

    Best answer: You should keep applying incase you don't get the job. You may be the leading candidate at the moment but that does mean you will be the leading candidate when she's done interviewing. Also, you shouldn't contact them anymore....let them do their process, there is a such thing as over kill. Usually... show more
    Best answer: You should keep applying incase you don't get the job. You may be the leading candidate at the moment but that does mean you will be the leading candidate when she's done interviewing. Also, you shouldn't contact them anymore....let them do their process, there is a such thing as over kill. Usually you can get away with 1 last question if its a good question so hopefully that 20 minute conversation came from a good question. Good Luck, stay focused and don't be discouraged if you don't get the job....just keep applying, trying and learning from each interview.

    So my job is a home based position M-F with 1-2 days of “canvassing for sales”. My question is can I get into trouble with my company if I go away for an extended weekend F-Tue and take my computer with to work out of state for the beginning of the week? Flights were cheapest on tuesday and so I figured if I still do my work from 8-5 then I shouldn’t get into trouble b/c after all the work is getting done and it’s only for 2 days. Anybody have experience with this? Or if your a “boss, would you be upset if your employee did this? Thanks in advance for answers!

    I have been working at a company for 4 years started as an apprentice when i was 17 now work full time for them. For the first 2 years I had quite a bit of time of due to mental health issues (signed of by doctors etc) for the past 2 years my absence is minimal Overall in the 4 years working for the company I have had multiple disciplinary meeting after having time off (signed off by doctor and gave work my sick note) and have even had a written warning. I have been on a temporary contract since 2014 and each time the contract has been renewed rather than a permanent contract given to me. I have now been given my notice and told that when my temporary contract runs out in march 2018 I won’t be getting it renewed and my role will be being made ‘redundant’ My role isn’t being made redundant it’s just going to be a different title. Monday I rang in sick at work as I had a flu all weekend and Tuesday rang in again to advise I will be back the following day..m I then got a text off my line manager stating that I HAVE to come to work today or else I will be sacked and she will determine if I am fit to work or not. I had a meeting when I arrived at work (When she saw with her own eyes and admitted I wasnt well) and she told me I am not allowed to take any of my annual leave or any more days off and I will get paid for my annual leave instead when I leave. I had to do the work that was urgent and then she allowed me to leave. I am just wondering if this seems right or not?Thanks

  • Does an employee really have to justify to his boss why he is resigning?

    Best answer: these bosses are just trying to guilt you into staying. they know their business sucks. some larger businesses "request" an exit interview, so you can voice your opinion about the place--as well as why you're leaving. their intent is to see how they can use what you've said to improve the company.

  • Is it legal for a cop to search your bag?

    Best answer: It basically boils down to whatever the cop says you got to follow. They get a hard on having power over people and they love it when people suck up to them. Police do discrimate and I've learnt the best thing to do is dress smartly, you'd be invisible to them if you dress to their approval.
