injury, ATOS and the probation period

Post by steggles » Sun Jan 18, 2009 11:50 am

Morning all.

I have a question. A colleague of mine was injured during training and needs to attend an ATOS assessment. I hear on the grapevine that recruitment has stopped in the South East and March is the last training event(s).

Whats the probability that if she was injured whilst at training and ATOS recommend that she is not fit to resume full duties that HMP will cancel the employment contract due to still being within the probation period ?

If there is not training sessions taking place - will they put her on light duties / OSG duties?

Any info would be of assistance.
