Employment rights for Mental Health sufferer. 57 yr old been put on gardening leave since Nov 1st 2018. Grievance Appeal pending result, new opening requested for reasonable adjustment (other identical post given to another sufferer) but employer will not allow him to move there. They want him to remain in the job that has caused Work related Stress Mental Health breakdown on 2 long absences, decimated sick record after putting them in writing twice re why he had the breakdowns. Offered hi financial settlement to go but its not financially viable to take it. 

What are his rights?  Union asked for reasonable adjustment and told them making him remain given all they know via the Grievance is unreasonable. 30 yr service with this company and is a multi talented engineer

    Ihave read your concern and i can only advise that you contact Acas as they will be able to give you legal advice on how you can approach this with your employer. I would also like to say you should contact your union as they can give you a good leverage on what rights you have and the legal obligaratory your company currently has to support you in this time.

    here is the link for Acas

    I hope you find this useful


    Kind Regards

    Hi Rian, we have,  read up loads on all of this and have union involvement but still the company seems to feel untouchable! My Union Rep has gone on leave for two weeks, which the company are utilising in that they have a phased return plan worked out, which if I return gives them affirmation and cancels out the grievance and its appeal. Thanks anyway
