On Monday I had a shift at work. It's a bad retail store and it's always warm. It was a 3hrs shift for £3.79 p/h. I decided to call in sick because I had another shift from my other job at a call centre for 7hrs for £7 p/h. As you can see I decided to go with the better job. I called in at the retail store at 8am and my shift was meant to start at 12pm. I said to the supervisor I had an eye infection and my eyelid had swelled up so I had to book a doctors appointment to get it checked out. She said I had to bring in a doctor's note if I missed a shift. HOWEVER, in my contract it says I don't have to bring in any medical note unless if I'm off for 7 days or more to be entitled for sick pay. I don't want or need any sick pay. Also, in the gov. co. uk website it also state I DONT have to bring in any medical note to an employer if I'm off for less than 7days. I was off one fucking shift!! What do I do?

Even though This and That is Stated in Accordance to 'This and that' here, dear, it seems your own Supervisor may have her own set of set rules and is making you jump through a few hoops To... Keep your job and all of its shifts.
To please her, keep the peace and silence is golden would be my best bet and advice at this time, go see the Emergency Room Doctor to tell them you need your eye Checked because something 'Strange' got inside it. If you have to Add more food for thought to this ridiculous recipe, cut up a few Onions to make the batch seem real so it becomes Not a raw deal, but at Least... My eyelid had swelled up.
You Need to do something to save the day and your job and even if it is this fly by night 'Bad retail store' Spot, it;'s a job you cannot afford to lose because you decided To... Go with the better job.
Maybe one day it will be possible to get more hours at This other job. But for now, let this be a little lesson in life that there is sometimes is a price to pay for some strife.
Good luck. xx0
