I wonder if any of you can offer some pearls of wisdom.
My HR Apprentice, who is coming to the end of his Level 3, missed his professional discussion due to illness.
He was absent from work for one day and the CIPD are asking for a fit note so that they can rearrange the professional discussion.
Added to the fact that they would not provide an assessor during the month of December, this now seems like a ridiculous request from a body who should know better about wasting GP time to request a fit note for one day.
This really is an appalling example of this body's behaviour and certainly for my apprentice is not a career path and membership he will promote to peers.
Has anyone got any tips or a contact I can speak to about this situation.
