I am having to choose between resigning and going to a panel and being dismissed at work. I am a care worker but have arthritis in my knee. Work has tried to redeploy me but this hasn't been successful. Now I have to choose what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I would let them dismiss you on grounds of ill health some companies pay compensation for this though it isn't a legal requirement 

    Check the company policy on medical dismissal for more advice
