Know Your Rights

Medical Appointments
If you have to attend occasional Doctors, Dentists, or any other medical appointments, you should expect to receive paid time off. In other words, you should not have to make this time up.

You are expected to try and get an appointment which minimises the time you need to take off (for example, first thing in the morning), but this is not always possible.

Any union member who has previously been asked to make up time in this way should contact UNITE for advice on whether there is a case for re-claiming this time

Representation
Every member of UNITE has the right to be accompanied by one of the Union Reps in any meetings related to a disciplinary or sickness absence matter.
