I don't know if any of you have an experience with legal issues & work but if you do please let me know. Since the beginning of the year I seem to have one flare up after another & each time I recover less well. This means I've had about 9 weeks off sick already & in between my GP signed me off to work from home two days a week to reduce commuting & stress. In April work said they wanted me to apply for PHI (permanent health insurance) which basically means leave work & then the unum insurance through work pay me a % of my salary but basically I'd be on long term sick.
I've just got back from 10 days holiday & the HR rep called me today saying basically unum aren't accepting that fibro is a chronic illness & that I need to go see my GP & either be signed off completely or be back to work full time from the next day. There is no way I can work full time at the moment my right leg is so weak I'm not even sure I could drive.
I am so upset. I'd been working two days in the office two days at home to help them as much as I can & to keep working as long as possible now HR are saying my good work ethic is making things worse so its all or nothing.
Anybody else been through similar?
