Hello everyone this is my first post to this forum. I was diagnosed with asthma about 4 years ago and has generally been in control. However since January of this year I have had chest infection after chest infection resulting in numerous courses of steroids and antibiotics. I also had a nasty attack which resulted in me spending 7 days in hospital. I do quite a heavy job as a driver installer and this has meant that I have had high sickness levels since January as I haven't been able to carry out my job. My employer has started to deduct pay from me as I am over the percentage of sickness that is deemed acceptable. Just wondering whether anyone has been in a similar situation.
