As you know I had a serious crash last week were I got servere whiplash, back injury and to my knee, I got told by my work they wont pay me any money, even though the accident wasnt my fault as I was a passenger and it was in the works van in works time. I went back after 3 days, and they had me doing my own job again, lifting pool tables and fruit machines.
I went back till friday and had today off to see the doctor as I have made it worse trying to carry on as normal. the doctor wants me to take 3 weeks of and go to physio.
I can not afford this amount of time off. so I have asked for a weeks holiday, now they are saying they doubt they will let me do this as everyones holidays start in december. So I havnt built enough holiday off to be granted it.
Is it me or am my employers not being very fair. Should they pay me my wages and claim it back of the insurance or claim will have to put in.
Or is this ok for them to do this
