I need some advice about returning to work
I need some advice about returning to work , I have been off a number of weeks. I did return and I was expecting a back to work meeting and a refferal to Ovcupationsl health the day I returned however this did not happen even though it’s in the policy . I am a social worker and I work for the local authority . I have two degenerative disc . I am unable to carry equipment , which we have to do as I am classesed as remote worker. I was seen by axcess to work and was given a chair which is based in another location from the patch I work in. I have been Seen by axcess to work more recently and I was told that I need a fixed desk and one that will be able to adjust the height on it so I can stand if needed. I was told by the manager that this will not be implemented, I was also told by axcess to work that I need a back support cushion to take on visits, this was not implemented. Any way due to issues at work when I returned , I was off again probably having to carry a lap top around from sites. Please can I have advice on moving forward .
