I wondered if anyone has been in the same situation as myself or could give me advise on the following scenario please?
I work as a T.A. in a hospital environment and the awkward positions I have to sit/stand in are causing my CS to flare up on a very regular basis. By the end of the day I am in extreme pain so I asked my manager if I could work in an area where the children were able to work at a table rather than in their beds.
Her response was to say she felt I was unable to fulfil all my duties as I must be able to work anywhere in the hospital and in any situation.
She has now referred me to occupational health. I am afraid they may say I am unfit to carry out all my duties and I may lose my job.
Does anyone know if my employer has the right to fire me if I can't carry out all my duties? Also is CS a condition that would enable me to take early retirement on grounds of ill health?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
