Asking for a friend, yes really, who while on furlough from their paid position has made a successful claim for P.I.P.. They have also been awarded a blue badge as mobility has become more limited. At present they are waiting for knee replacement surgery but are having a lot of pain and problems along the way. The question they have asked me to share is :- should they let their employer know now that their health is in decline? Should they wait until it becomes unbearable to continue? If it is the former, might the employer consider dismissing them ? If they are sacked or invited to resign, would there be any financial help available? Would they be better off to " grin and bear it " until surgery when hopefully the furlough may have ended and some form of normal might resume ?
