Meeting today.


Unpaid since 25/04/2013.


Are you able to fulfill your role still?

Was the stroke in relation to work?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The stroke was not in relation to work and my Neurologist has confirmed that I can still perform the inherent requirements of my work.


If you have the details from the doctor confirming that you can work then you should not be stood down.

I would suggest speaking with Fair Work Ombudsman and lodge a formal complaint. They will make a judgement call and deal with the matter swiftly, considering that you have evidence to give you the ok to work.
