Hello, please forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere im still a newbie here. My question is... has anyone had to leave their job because of their condition and if so where do you start with the whole process?? My very patient employers have been great so far but my diplopia which is looking unlikely to be corrected is not a condition my employers will allow me to work with. I've asked if I can be reassigned elsewhere but as cabin crew your only contracted to fly not to do any other roles. I'm in limbo at the moment as I've been off sick now 14 weeks but need to be giving my employer an idea of what's going on soon. I'm struggling on sick pay and diploplia though isnt to my knowledge a recognised disability so I doubt I'll be entitled to any help or benefits. I'm far too young to retire so will have to find work but I just wondered really if anyone had ever been in a similar situation and what they did. Does my employer have to offer me anything if an medical condition has deemed me unfit. I've always worked all my life never claimed anything or needed to before. I would welcome any pointers or shared experiences. Thankyou very much
