Issues at work

amie08 Member Posts: 14

I suffer from JIA and Fibromyalgia. JIA has been in remission for last few years but flared up in November which has resulted in my knee being drained twice since then and still flared up at the moment.

Since my flare up, my work don't seem to understand what I'm going through. I have been working there for just under a year and a half, they took me on knowing my medical conditions. But i was taken into the office last week and told my absence was too high. Yesterday I received a letter saying I'm being monitored and if it keeps happening then I may be dismissed from the company. Only 3 or 4 of my absences have been for bugs or infections and the rest were hospital/doctors appointments and even a laparoscopy operation which have all been held against me!

I just wondered if anyone else had trouble at work with things like this?

    I know nothing about it myself but, if you google 'workers rights' lots of useful-looking sites come up.
