Looking for some advice as still work but a very noisy and stressful place. What are my rights to get help with this? ?
Would I be entitled  to  any benefits  if I was unable to work  ??? Its getting so hard.

    Hi @Eve2003
    Welcome to the community! Please check out all the information in this section; what benefits am I entitled to. As for the noise level I am unsure however another member of the community may be able to advise you and will be in contact with you soon. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can help you with! :)

    Hi,

    Have you spoken to your employer about reasonable adjustments? If not then i'd advise you to do this. See this link about reasonable adjustments in the workplace.
    If that doesn't help then SSP is payable for 28 weeks, before you can claim ESA. You'll need a fit/sick note from your GP to be able to claim SSP.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
