I'm hoping that someone will be able to relate to my particular work situation and, perhaps, give me some advice.
I've just been moved into a job not by choice, and am being told it requires me to travel between 4 and 8 hours in a day to various meetings.
I have tried to explain that I will find this impossible with my RA condition, and that just travelling 2 hours to work full time each day is e trembly tiring for me.
So, they've asked me to have an Occupational Health Review - 20 minutes over the phone, so they can decide what to do with me.
I'm extremely worried because I've no idea what questions they are likely to ask. I'm so unsure what will be decided but feel as though this twenty minutes will shape the rest of my working life.
Should I be worried? I have worked so hard at keeping up with a full time job and I really don't want to lose any of this momentum but the travelling expectations is just too much for me. Will an OH person believe me? Will they need proof? They are paid by my employer so will they be looking to reduce any particular problems ie me?
My conversation is booked for this Thursday, so any thoughts you might offer before this would become extremely helpful.
