Hi All,

I have been off work 3 weeks in July and a week in Aug, which has triggered a sickness review from my workplace.
They also got a medical report from my doctors who said "In my view he would satisfy the criteria of a disabled per for the purpose of the equality act 2010 in that he has a mental impairment which has a substantial long term adverse effect on his ability to carryout his day to day actives"

My work would like to get me back to work full time (I want to also), but they want to put things in place to allow for this. But we are a crossroads as what to do with me, working shorter days would impact me financially so they don't want to do that. They have asked me to think about and then go back tomorrow for a further meeting.

Have any of you had similar meetings? what agreement did you come to?
