I have a question regarding my husbands employment I was wondering if you could help with. About 8 weeks ago my husband had a suspected TIA (mini stroke) and has been off work ever since having tests/scans etc. My question is, he is a bus driver and if it is confirmed that it was a TIA then he will be unable to return to work in the capacity of a bus driver and his employer, being a small business would be unable to redeploy him elsewhere. So where does he stand? I have been told that he would be enititled to one weeks pay for each year he has worked for the company because he will be dismissed due to health reasons. Is this correct? I thank you for any help you will be able to give.

My mum was injured at work on Friday. She was picking from the racking above her head but someone hadn't cut a hole in the front of the box so she tipped the box up to reach inside & a box weighing 9.5kg hit her in the face nearly knocking her out. The same thing happened to my sister who also works there a couple of weeks ago & she reported it to her team leader at the time.
My mum who is 61 if that makes any difference threw up not long after & felt giddy/lightheaded so they dropped her off at the local hospital. The nurse told her she had concussion & to go home to rest. She now has a big lump on her head & still has a headache so won't be going back to work tomorrow either.
My questions are:
1. Do they have to pay her as she is only off work as she was injured due to the stockers not doing there job properly?
2. Can they discipline her according to their abscence management procedure for having time off?

Hopefully a quick question:
Does time served as an apprentice count for employment rights?
1. When moving onto a perminant contract does time served as an apprentice count with no break in service towards the 2 years of employment rights?
2. When moving onto a fixed terms contract does time as an apprentice count towards the rights you have at the time of renewal?
