Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
How long have you worked there?
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
