Hi everyone, trying to get used to the new (improved?!) site.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on the 'legal' requirements of declaring RA?
I have been applying for lots of administration jobs (Qualified carer but no longer able to do the job) and not had a single reply. Then I applied for a rather well known pharmacy/store and I decided to declare I had RA as it was the only application that asked about medical conditions and was shocked that I got a reply within 6 hours stating I was 'unsuitable' for the job! I was pretty shocked as it was only for customer assistant so not really a qualified position and put that I could work from 6am til 10pm to give me more opportunity to get an interview at least. Anyway I emailed them back just curiously asking the reason I was unsuitable and a lady replied saying they had so many applicants that they had to close the vacancy early and I was too late :/ so confused, am i being fobbed off!! This experience has given me very little hope of being employed with this crap disease so fed up as I can't get PIP or whatever it is as I'm not disabled enough, only my hands, wrists and elbows effected x
