If you are seriously ill or have sustained a serious injury as a result of an accident which was not your fault, your employer is not allowed to fire you during your recovery period. You will want to know more about accident claims in Cheshire East.
The only way that your employer can let you go from your job is if you have to take a very long time off, or will no longer be able to perform the task that you need to do in your job. In this case the rules are blurrier, and you may receive a payoff before your employer hires someone else.
If you want to keep your job, though, you do need to go through a series of steps to ensure that you are doing everything you should to keep your employer in the loop:
- Get a record of your illness. Keep records from your doctor and any other place you have to go to get treatment or therapy. This will help you to prove to your employer that you are genuinely ill, and what the progress of your injury is. This helps your employer and yourself to feel safe.
- Stay in contact. If you disappear off the radar for months at a time when you are suffering from a serious illness or injury, it is likely that your company will just forget about you, and may start looking into hiring someone else. On top of this, it is simply bad manners not to keep your company up to date with where you are.
- Talk to your manager about adjustments to your job. Your employer will be keen to get you back to work as quickly as possible. Show willingness by discussing with your manager what adjustments can be made to your job to help you get back into your employment sooner rather than later.
