    Public transport accident in Knowsley


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Knowsley

    After a public transport accident in Knowsley, you may find yourself being forced off work for a while whilst you recover. It’s important therefore to speak to your employer about your options to ensure you can focus on your recovery instead of worrying about work. Read on for tips about what to discuss with your employer below.

    What to discuss after a public transport accident in Knowsley

    If you’re going to be needing a period of recovery following an accident, you may wish to discuss the following with your employer:

    The length of absence

    How long you’ll be unable to work will depend on the severity of your injuries – with some requiring weeks or even months to recover. Your employer may need to consider getting someone in to cover you during this period or make arrangements for a colleague to take on your projects.

    Your employer will want to make your recovery as stress free as possible. After all, it’s in their best interests that you return to work sooner. You may need to provide a brief handover to whoever will be covering your work, thus ensuring that you won’t be constantly disturbed whist you recover.

    Sick pay

    Knowing if and how you’ll be compensated during your leave is a very important factor to consider. Your employer may not pay you sick leave at all for your absence, or even just statutory sick pay, which may not match your salary. Being unable to earn whilst you recover could put a strain on your finances and lead to difficulty paying the bills.

    Flexible working arrangements

    You may feel perfectly able to work but could be suffering from mobility issues. Asking your employer for flexible working arrangements such as working from home could ensure that you continue to earn whilst you recover at home and still do your job effectively for your employer.
