Pay increase and sickness

Hi

Just a question. My company has given a general pay increase to my particular department, but I am on a long term sick leave. My colleagues have informed me of their rises, but the company has not informed me of anything.

Does being on sick leave waive you of your right to the pay increase are there some rules regarding this?

thanks

Re: Pay increase and sickness

You typically don't have a right to a wage increase and I would doubt you'd get an increase while on long term sick leave.

What if (not implying this for the OP!) a person brought in more revenue by staying away than by being at work, Phil?

easy - fire him, any slightly competent manager is able to spot that (not that all of them fall in this category...)

I would "wave" goodbye to any rights if I where you.
