    Compensation claims solicitors in Houghton Le Spring


    Discuss chronic illness or injury with your employer – compensation claims solicitors in Houghton Le Spring

    If you are suffering from a chronic illness or injury which affects your ability to work then you will need to broach this with your employer as soon as you can. This goes for whether you are just starting a new position, or have recently suffered an illness or injury and need to tell your existing employer how it is likely to affect your job. Your employer is not allowed to let you go simply because you are suffering from an illness or disability, but you do need to be upfront with them as they don’t have to keep someone on who physically cannot do the job. If they know about your illness or injury they can make this decision, and also make allowances for you to make your life easier.

    • Be honest and upfront. Let your employer know the situation and how it affects you day to day.
    • Let your employer know what aspects of the job will be a struggle for you.
    • Ask about working from home or having flexible hours. If it will help you to work more effectively then your employer may not mind changing your hours or letting you work from home as this still benefits the company.
    • Let your employer know when you will have to miss work. For doctors appointments and treatments you will have to skip work and your employer needs to know about this.
