Supervisor turned up at my house while on sick leave.
Was in a car crash at the end of June and have a herniated disc as a result. I’ve been on hospital leave ever since and recuperating at home as I pretty much can’t move.
I’ve kept regular contact with my supervisor and manager, I had just spoke to my manager last Friday and emailed him to cover my absence from my doctor.
Today my supervisor turns up unannounced knocking on my door and wakes my Baby, my wife just got her to sleep. He was here to hand deliver a letter about work.
I was on the toilet luckily so I missed him.
Just really pissed me off to have my personal space invaded when he could have just sent and email! Feels like he’s trying to intimidate me.
I’ve got a new job lined up for when my sick pay ends so f that guy.
Just to add a bit more information,
I initially had a month off after the accident. I went back in for a week, but the nature of my job meant I was just making my back worse.
Also my supervisor likes to throw his weight around. I know for a fact this was an intimidation tactic.
- I would email HR, along the lines of asking them if they knew supervisor did this. I’m willing to bet they don’t know.
- He was checking to make sure you weren’t doing cartwheels whilst trying to lift a Mini Cooper above your head. Glad you were pooping.
- How does a supervisor, or anyone for that matter even have the time to show up at an employees residence?!
- Maybe a little, but his true purpose was to check if you’re really injured/sick. He wanted to catch you doing something physical that your doctor’s note said you shouldn’t be doing so that he can claim you’re using your sick leave improperly.
