Not worth the paper it’s written on
We recently had a situation at a client who had been “too nice” to a new employee.
You might think it’s impossible to be “too nice”, but hear me out:
The client had employed his first female in his fairly new business.
In her first week of work, she was off one day sick and went home early another day.
In the first week!
He rang us and we discussed parting company with her, but at that stage we thought she had haemophilia, which would have been protected under disability discrimination.
He did a return to work interview with her where she said it was actually anaemia that was causing the problems (not a disability) but was then back at work for the rest of the month.
