I potentially face the risk of losing my job- my asthma has been really bad over the last 2 years particularly and have had 5-6 months off sick in total this year alone- 9 weeks over the summer and the same at the mo. my worry is that I could lose my job as there are definate rumblings- I did meet with HR in the summer who said it would be a last resort but.. it could happen.I work as a nurse and wondered if anybody else has been in a similar situation? Luckily i have spoken to my union who are great and so is my manager, but it is beyond her control. when I do get back to work I will have to go via occ. health and then take it from there. Looking on the blackside-if I did lose my job- are you retired through ill health or sacked??Sorry for the essay, but it is a constant worry as I guess if I did lose it i would be unemployable again- and would have to look at total life change. Do you qualify for any benefits initially?
Any advice would be great thanks!
