I was asked into the office today to discuss our stores failings which i took on board I was then given a form about absences I was told i had already had five days off this year and because the company was coming down on all the absences and I should be having a warning. If I was to take up to six days I could face dismissal. I actually said what a load of bull. I felt i was being told basically i could not be ill. My boss said don't shoot the messenger.
He then went on to say do you know how many days I have had off since i started here .... None which made me feel even worse. I had already filled in the back to work form explaining my illness but he then went on to fill the form in front of me asking for my illness again, at this point I got up and said I'm not doing this and walked out of the office, it was my home time anyway. I felt really victimised as though I was a youngster taking days off here and there. Im 60 years old and never had across word with any other boss there. This one is new and likes to micro manage I don't feel like going back there but my husband says just go in and do your job. Although he did phone the boss and say he was not happy with me coming home distressed. How should I handle this any advice

I am fortunate that i work for a company that take into considerration my ten years exemplary service record. The area manager said that it was the managers responsibility to have made me aware of this new form before he started the action. Also very unprofessional to brag his 100% attendance. and although this form has to be filled in he should have shown a little compassion instead of acting like a robot. We looked at my attendance record over the past three years and i have had the least days off over all my team mates. Not bragging. I have been amazed at the support of my team I feel totally appreciated.
I'm glad it's worked out for you, Chris.
