I was working 40hrs a week then in Jan 2020 diagnosed with non hodgkin's lymphoma..had the 28weeks ssp then any holiday pay paid to me.have been on universal credit all year. Have been told in Sept that I was in remission told boss that I would be looking at phasing my return to work in Jan 2021 health permitting. I have had a scan and something g little showed up and am going for another pet scan in March to see if any change.
I'm still signed off work until end of March because of the fatigue and my mental health has suffered this year dramatically and I'm suffering panic attacks and anxiety. My boss wants me to fill in a form to formally request that I reduce my hours to the 3 days I said I wanted to start back on and whether this is permanent.
As yet I dont know how I will feel when I start back and not sure if I will be able to do the 40hrs but I dont want to shoot myself in the foot by backing anything permanent
What are my rights about phasing back to work and can I still be signed off and try to get back to work?
Do I legally have to fill it out?
