I was diagnosed with RA a year ago. I have now been diagnosed with Duodenitis and I am waiting for the biopsy results. I have had 10 days off work during the due to the RA and stomach problems. My employer has sent me a letter of concern saying that my absence levels are unacceptable and hope to see an improvement otherwise they will have to take further action. Are they allowed to do this? It is making me very anxious and depressed and I can't afford to lose my job. Has anyone else been in this situation?
