My sick note doesn't run out till next March, should I have to attend work search interviews?
I've been on sick now for several years ( universal credit), drug intolerant fibromyalgia, spondylitis and COPD. In the last couple of months I've had to have three work search interviews even though sick note doesn't run out till next march . I would like to know if they should be asking me to attend these meetings, they should know that stress causes me pain and I cant get relief from it because I cant take the drugs because of the fibromyalgia. Should they be bothering me every 2 weeks ? Or are they breaking rules or even laws by what they are doing ?
