Elective surgery - do I have to tell my employer?
6 replies 541 views
Hello, I am having elective surgery next month and currently on furlough. I haven’t got a return date yet but if it so happens I have to return to work whilst in recovery (I cannot work for 4 weeks post op) do I have to tell my employer what type of surgery I have had? I would prefer they didn’t know, I’m the only female there and about 40 men and I’d rather just say it’s surgery and leave it at that. I would obviously have a sick note from my gp I was hoping that wouldn’t go into specifics either...!
