Has anyone got and experience or advice on ‘reasonable adjustment’ at work?
I work full time but am struggling with symptoms on a daily basis (fatigue, nausea bone pain). To date I have not taken any time off (2 years since diagnosis of ET triple neg – daily hydroxy of a varying dose as platelets have not been stable). My platelets are currently over 1000 so I have decided its time to step back a little work wise (busy stressful job, but I love it).
My manager is supportive – we work well together - and we have talked through a job-share option, which would work for both of us both shot term and long term. However, when we put this to Head Office/HR (who are not involved in the daily running of our site) they have said that this is not an option and my only options are to stay on full time or leave.
I am feeling angry about this, so was looking at the government guidelines around ‘reasonable adjustments’ in the work place. However, it is very ambiguous. Any wisdom, advise, suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks all and happy weekend
