adam Posted January 5, 2010 Share Posted January 5, 2010 Hi All It's been a while since I've posted, but I've not been far, I suppose Christmas and family stuff has been taking precedence I'm now rapidly approaching my "Anny-Versary" and am frustrated still to be off work, for some reason I'm really dreading the 8th Jan, don't know why, it's not like it's about to happen again, it's just the whole thing keeps rattling round my head, I wish I could explain it to my wife, but the whole thing sounds stupid even to me! Anyway, enough about that, I wanted to let off some steam about my employer, I've been trying to sort out a back to work programme for some time now, unfortunately they are being somewhat less than helpful... How's this for an extract of an email "Our responsibilities do not extend to helping employees recover in the workplace. We have ample work that needs to be performed by you when you are fit and able to perform the work to the acceptable level of ability prior to your illness. Your doctor may very well have an input as to how many hours you can perform at this level. We would have to seek medical advice to understand how someone who is supposed to be fully fit and able to return to work is not able to obtain a fully functional driving license. However this would not preclude you from using public transport." I'm not sure how to respond to this one....If I'm not as good as new, I might as well join the scrap heap, and as for not understanding why I don't have a driving licence, well that's beyond me. Looks like I may be about to go down a disability discrimination route, that's the last thing I wanted after the last 12 months, wish I had an understanding and enlightened employer!!! Hope you are all well Take Care Adam Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
