Had a visit from the HR dept and my manager yesterday and basically ive lost my job.
Apparently they do not have another permanent job for me so i have been given 2 options - either medically resign based on incapability ( due to the fact i have to be accredited by the home office and to get this i must be able to do control and restraint) - if i retire i get a months pay plus and holiday due.
option 2 is i don't resign and in 2 weeks time they will sack me as on incapability grounds - then i get nothing.
I have spoke to BLF benefits officer who is looking into the best option for me.
I understand why they need to sort it out as i am a manager and they are paying me full wages and paying someone else to do my job, (and can't legally employ someone to do it on a permanent basis as i still hold the position ) but i am finding it really hard to accept myself as unemployed. I don't do unemployment very well!!!!
Trying to keep optimistic and thinking as i am worse in the winter i could try and get a seasonal job - living where i do we have legoland, thorpe park, chessington and a lot of "royal" visiting places within a 10 minute drive. so i am keeping my spirits up that way ( and my fingers crossed!!) and thinking of the future.
\In all honesty i knew it would happen - it was a case of when not if........................
