I am due to attend court as a witness in 4 weeks time hopefully I will be a lot better but if still on sick leave from work could I get into trouble?
I think there's really two related questions here that have to be answered:
- Will you be well enough to testify in court?
- Would you be well enough to go to work?
We can't answer those questions, of course, but they may not have the same answer. For instance, your provider may determine you're well enough to stand in court for a few hours or whatever is required, but you're not well enough to do your job.
If you're working with your medical team to address both questions, separately, and you're following policy at your employer regarding PTO, it is likely that your workplace will have no reason to be upset, regardless of the result.
