My asthma was diagnosed brittle in 2015 having been a bit of a nightmare since 2014. I started a new job last summer and as part of the recruitment process I was completely honest about how much sick time I'd had. Since the new job I've had 3 exacerbations and was admitted to hospital for one of them. One was in a leave week so didn't impact on my work. In the past 12 months I have had 4 courses of steroids and 2 hospital admissions and 3 ED attendances.
However, I'm now being managed on the sickness pathway and have a meeting in Feb with my manager and HR. I believe that asthma this severe may be classified as a disability in line with the equality act.
Anyone have experience of this? What 'reasonable adjustments' proved useful for you?
