Sickness absence can take many different forms. Your rights, and what your employer should do, differ depending on the nature of your illness, for example:
No-one likes being ill or unable to work. If your absence is likely to be lengthy, or if you are unable to carry out your work because of an injury or disability, then your employer may think about whether the employment relationship can continue.
Our team of specialist employment Solicitors in Ipswich, Suffolk can let you know if the procedure your employer is following is unfair, or if there are adjustments that ought to be considered if you suffer from a disability. Where appropriate, we can intervene on your behalf to try and resolve the situation. We can look at any medical reports that are obtained and how these could impact on your situation. If your employment is unreasonably brought to an end, we can help you with your appeal, and help you bring a claim in the Employment Tribunal if you have been unfairly dismissed or discriminated against.
If you have been injured at work and this was the fault of your employer, we can refer you to our personal injury team for advice on your situation.
As with everything we do, our charges are very reasonable and tailored to the work that you would like us to do. In the vast majority of cases, we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you have comfort in knowing that you can safely budget, with no fear of receiving an unexpected bill from us.
