If you have been absent from work for a long time, then returning to work is another stage in your recovery process that you need to think carefully about. Even if you feel as though you are completely recovered from whatever it was that kept you from work, you may still be physically weak, or not feel emotionally prepared for getting back into work straight away. Before you consider heading back into the office, there are some things which you should be thinking about to ease the transition and make sure that this is the right move for you.
If you are still not ready to head back to work, but there are financial issues forcing you back, think about whether or not you are able to make accident claims in Rochford for the accident that caused your injury or illness. If your injury was caused by someone else directly, or the negligence of someone else, then you may well be able to make accident claims in Rochford in order to get compensation.
Compensation can then pay for lost wages and keep you afloat until you are truly ready to go back to work. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone to find out more about accident claims in Rochford and whether or not you have a good case for compensation. If you do then you can be passed over to an in house experienced injury lawyer, who will work on a 100% no win, no fee basis to get you the compensation you deserve.
Make a change
If you have been off work for a very long time then this may be the perfect chance to think about making a change to your job or even your line of work. Your old job may not want to take you back after a long time, or you may have had time to think and decide that this is no longer the right path for you. Either way, think about retraining or going back to college to find out what other options there are for you.
Consider your illness or injury
You may desperately want to go back to your old job, but you should think about whether or not this is a good idea with whatever your illness or injury was. You may find that you are not able to do the same job in the same capacity, in which case you need to come up with solutions that help you to return to work.
Use your time off as a positive
Think about all of the things you have done during your time off. Or, if you still have time off to go, think about what you can still do with your time off to use it as a positive when you return. Employers will look more favourably on you if you can prove that you have learned something whilst you were away.
