Hi, I am new to this sight. I am after some advice. Is Hypothyroidism, or at least its symtoms/effects covered under the equality act 2010?
The reason I ask is because I have had time off work over the past few years with various symptoms of this condition...Vertigo, tinnitus, fatigue and more recently panic attacks and depression. All of these were diagnosed by my GP before I was diagnosed with severe Hypothyroidism. Due to my attendance record I have to attend a stage one meeting with HR involved. I has explained to several of my supervisors how I have been feeling but got little support from many until recently. I think Hypothyroidism is not specifically covers but if it has a long term effect on daily life then it could? Can anyone advise me please. Many thanks.
