Being left unable to work is a great concern for those suffering from personal injuries. If you are unable to go into work because of your injury, your employer may have some options to ensure that you can keep earning whilst you’re at home. Read about solutions for flexible working below as well as information on making compensation claims in Plymouth with Accident Advice Helpline.
Flexible working options
Some of the most popular options for flexible working include:
- Working from home – Working from home allows you to continue with your day to day duties from the comfort of your own home. If you are unable to walk or tire easily because of your injury, then working from home could be the best solution for you and your employer. If the nature of your work allows, your employer should be able to set up access to email and your network in order to carry out tasks as if you were at the office.
- Working part-time – Whilst you may not be able to return to work full-time because of your injuries, part-time working could be a solution for you whilst you recover. Only working a couple of days a week could help you to stay on top of your work, whilst using your non-working days to recover.
- Flexible hours – Working flexible hours could help you to condense your working week, meaning that you can start and leave earlier or later depending on what suits you. As long as you complete your number of required or core hours a week, you can ensure that you don’t fall behind. This will also make tasks such as hospital appointments and others easier.
