A year ago today Steve had his stroke, it's been a challenging year.
His recovery has been in fits and starts, family problems, his family not mine, have caused extra stress.
Steve initially was very keen to return to work but this hasn't been possible.
Fortunately he was eligible for six months full pay and six months half pay.
This finishes today but as we have sold our old boat we have some savings behind us.
He was asked to hand his notice in but refused as it would mean he'd be expected to look for alternative employment.
Therefore he is to be dismissed on the grounds of medical incapacity.
This means he does not have to seek other employment and he should get his NI stamp paid until he reaches pension age.
He will not be entitled to any benefits as we have savings.
Unfortunately the dismissal procedure isn't going well.

The first meeting was cancelled, we are still waiting for another date to be suggested.
