Tubeworker hears that LU managers are monitoring staff under the Attendance at Work procedure for taking unpaid domestic leave.
Managers are asking us to account for our time off in Return to Work Interviews – in some cases using domestic leave to build up case histories of ‘bad attendance’.
Parental leave and time off to care for dependents in emergencies is a legal right. It cannot be used as grounds for any ‘less favourable’ treatment – including action under the Attendance at Work procedure.
The clue is in the word “leave”: leave means it’s been allowed. Leave cannot be used against us.
