Re: Doctor's certificate ( mobbing at work )

Depends very much on the illness, and the country of origin of the Certificate. Depression due to 'bullying' is a different matter than, say pneumonia or a heart attack.

Her illness was a bronchial one (not pneumonia) but pretty bad nonetheless.

She still required some time off on return to Switzerland as she was still unwell by then but wanted to do so as soon as she had permission to fly. This was covered by certification from her Dr here.

I guess as she continued working as much as she could from home via her work laptop and company cellphone even whilst sick, that was good enough for her boss not to call into question her integrity and commitment to the job or request any further assessment.

Re: Doctor's certificate ( mobbing at work )

In the case of a clear illness as you describe, then yes, no problem.

Dear OP, Walk around with a little digital voice recorder and take it out of your pocket as soon as she is arround. You say absolutely nothing speciel, just press the button when she talks, and work normally. If you know you are off that place intwo months anyway, it's not much trouble in your daily workday.

Does the company you work for not have an anti bullying policy as part of its HR programme? Most sensible employers do.

Being entitled to an independant assessment & not accepting a certificate from a Dr in the UK is not really the same thing. They could even fly a Dr to the UK if they really want, if they really don't believe UK Dr's are trained to a high enough standard! Of course this is not going to happen for a short period of sickness, if it's 6 months or more then thats another thing.
