My girlfriend's new manager is requesting that people provide the exact reason for their sickness even if they provide a medical certificate. Isn't this some sort of privacy breach? Has this happened to any of you guys? What's the proper response?
If there are any lawyers in the house, would you be able to kindly point me to some sort of legal aspect of this?
Thanks a million guys.
Edit: the medical certificate contains the generic “ABC was deemed unfit for work on XX date to YY date” it is only a day or two for her and her colleague’s sick leave, not an entire week or anything.
