I suffer from anxiety and depression, and have been told by my doctor and psychotherapist that I am unable to work night shifts....
I set a letter to my employer for a request for reasonable adjustment under the disability act as I was advised to do.....
Are they obligated to make said adjustments and if they don't what is the next course of action I can take.
For Ben Jones
I work for an offshore oil drilling company, I can see no reason why they couldn't that I am aware of they have personal that work strictly days. we work 12 hour shifts 7 days a week for the full 21 days we are on the rig. I am flying out to the rig working 21 straight nights and flying back home. AS stated my doctors don't feel as though I am suited for that shift pattern based on what has happened, I have been with this company for about a year and 5months, and have worked the oil patch for the past 5 plus years
I feel that after the meeting today that I was basic told like it or lump it.
Does my own GP have to issue a letter clarifying that I do indeed have this disability, as they have stated that the occupational Health doctor never stated it.
Can I raise a grievance
What point do I elevate it to a grievance and can it be held against me
FOr Ben Jones
This is a silly question
How do I raise a grievance, as I feel that this is my only avenue, and in doing so do I run the risk of ostracising myself, or painting a big target on my chest, because I feel i won't be able to return.
