Im just looking for a bit of advice on the above! I got arthritis at the end of April and was off work for 4 months on sick leave before I handed my notice in. I then still had a zero hours contract and I honoured all the shifts that I arranged through that contract so I have now had 4 months without any sick leave with the same employer. I have just handed in my notice with that job as I felt I needed a fresh start as they weren't at all supportive re my condition.
Health wise I have a diagnosis now of spondyloarthritis with enthesitis and am on steroids and soon starting sulfasalazine to control the symptoms. I am feeling really well and have applied for and been offered a new job.
I am concerned about my previous sick leave and wonder if they will ask my employer about it when requesting references? Should I raise it the issue first myself? I am confident that I will manage this new job and scared that they will withdraw the offer based on my previous sick leave. Any advice would be appreciated.
