Morning all,

I need some advice. OH works for a large supermarket. He came home from work Friday with sickness and diarrhea. He never has time off work as company are really hard an anyone who has time off. So I knew this was serious. He phoned work yesterday as he has literally been on the toilet every half and hour and told them he couldn't go in. Well he got a right earful, they told him to take something and ring back in 4 hours. So he did and another earful - we need you in, you need to come in, you sound ok etc etc. He was up 8 times in the night on the toilet. He's gone in today and had been to the loo 3 times in 90 minutes.

Both times he has been off we traced it back to maybe the work cafe. He phoned his union yesterday and is waiting a call back.

I really want to report the supermarket to health and safety as consumers are being put at risk. AIBU?

Thanks in advance xx

I didn't think employers were allowed to interrogate people ringing in sick....? YADNBU anyway. If he's coming into contact with customers and their food, then he needs to be well clear of anything like a d&v bug.

Just spoke to his union they have told me to advise him to leave now and go to emergency walk in now. I have previously been flammed for moaning about him working unpaid overtime but I think it all contributes to the bullying tactics of the company xx
