I have suffered with severe depression and anxiety over the last three years and have been in full time employment for the past four years. I have had time off with bad anxiety around three months ago were I was signed off sick for 2 weeks. I felt better when I whent back but I'm feeling terrible now and I'm looking at taking time out. I suffer badly in work and have been having panic attacks. I feel that some considerable tine away will help me a lot. I was just wondering if anyone knew about rights in the workplace. My employers know about my condition and I'm aware of procedures when it comes to sacking an employee. I was a little worried though whether they could fire me without warnings before hand ? I'm looking at taking a number of weeks off butbwas worried. Can an employer cause me problems for taking time off sick. I am very rarely off. Buy I feel I need to do this in order to get better. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you I advance.
