Hello, my name is ***** ***** my colleague has asked me to assist with your query as it is more my area of law.

If you are unable to work the usual 12 hour shifts because of your injury then you can make a formal request for flexible working, requesting that your employer changes your working hours to accommodate your preferred shift pattern. However, they can reject it and if that happens and you cannot work 12h shifts then you have the following options:

1. You can work the 12h shifts if you can, but I understand that may not be possible for you

2. You can continue being signed off work because you cannot actually do the job you are expected to do. In the meantime you can give in your notice and remain on sick leave for the duration of the notice period.

3. You can negotiate with the employer to allow you to leave with immediate effect

I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
