Thanks for the answer. I obviously did not explain properly. It is not the pay which is being withheld (not got that far yet!). The Bank, before the end of May, say that they are going to ask staff to volunteer for redundancy. The Bank will then decide who is going to go and who they want to keep. They need 9000 volunteers. My issue is that having been off sick the Bank may not even ask me if I want to volunteer as previously they excluded any long term sick people for volunteering thereby denying them the chance to take redundancy. Can the Bank exclude a specific group of staff and deny them the opportunity to take redundancy? I would not have expected sickness to be suitable criteria for excluding staff from this kind of exercise.
