Can a potential employer who has offered me a job subject to references and occupational health information refuse to appoint me based upon a 3 month leave of absence due to a mental health problem which is now under control?
I am a doctor and had 3 months off work Jan-April due to a new diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I have been back at work since then and have had no further problems. I have just received a job offer from a private company, subject to references and I know they will be sending me an occupational health questionnaire out too. I am concerned that they may rescind my offer if they know about my condition and recent leave of absence.
Yes and yes.
Dear Ben Jones,
I have not received a satisfactory timely response and would like a refund.
Thanking you in anticipation,
