PIP and Nasty Bosses

Some may remember me bemoaning the lack of care and understanding of my employers as to my condition and the difficulties in the workplace. No adjustments, no adaptations (Although it's actually a legal requirement!) Just rude, borderline abusive attitude from them and this is a health care company!

So, I had to bite the bullet and try to resolve things on my own. I resigned due to their attitude to my failing health. Got a new job within half an hour of eventually giving up on the old one and their lack of assistance and understanding. Better paid and I work from home! Major plus! No travel.

Also, to gild the lily, have just got a positive award from PIP for 3 years! (back dated to June this year). Celebrated by going out and buying myself a new chair for my home office! Simple pleasures. Tee hee. It is leather though, proper leather. Not like those who state "leather", but its wafer thin and bonded to cheap polyester!

So yes, there's still a road to walk (so to speak) but at least its now more like soft carpet than cold, uncaring concrete.

Hope everyone else sometime gets the feeling I got from receiving this Good News outpouring.

Gentle Hugs Everyone.

Great news on two counts! Hope you settle quickly in your new job. Just goes to show there are understanding employers out there & better still being able to work from home. Hope the extra help that PIP gives you is helpful & is commensurate to your application.
