Hi I have had hypothyroidism for approx 10yrs. I am a vet nurse working 40+hrs/wk and am currently struggling with extreme tiredness,brain fog, and painful muscles and joints. Last year I went to occ health and as a result I was put on the same shift(11-8pm) but I just feel I do not have a work-life balance as just so exhausted all the time and need to do something about it. So just under a month ago I applied to drop a day which was refused on grounds of financial burden on the business which I do not get because my salary would drop and even if they found someone to cover me it would just be what I have dropped surely!?does anyone know where I stand legally with disability discrimination act?is hypothyroidism covered by this,I'm crap with legal stuff!!thanks
