after having had two procedures and 6 weeks of radiotherapy I find I am recovering well and hope to return to work in the next few months. I work for local government, and have had my pay cut to half pay. I have found that the company is also using the half pay for bank holidays .I do not believe this should be happening, is this not discriminatory? also i have leave to carry over from last year I understand I lose my service days and can only carry over 4 weeks. I raised this with my team leader and suggested that before i return to work I would take all my leave , this years and last as I only have until the end of October this year to take it as my new leave year starts in November. he made the suggestion that the company would not allow this and also may well stop my service days for this year too, this would mean i lose 9 days leave again. Can this be correct losing service days for this year and also only paying me half pay for bank holidays?
