Potential redundancy

Hope everyone is doing well! Tough time but we’ve made it this far.

I have been furloghed sinced the end of March, my job isn’t technically allowed to be open until the 1st of October.

It would seem there’s a high chance they won’t open until next year. This would mean I will have to find a new job.

Whilst this usually wouldn’t bother me so much even after 10 years there but with my MS now and even though I’m still physically well enough to work I do struggle with my arms (could be the lack of any real arm exercise the last few months) so i’m not sure how I would do in a physically demanding job.

Would I need to tell employers in interviews about the MS?

I’m really hoping my job is still there in October as I’ve been doing it long enough and they are understanding to things being diagnosed whilst working there.

I know we’re all going through tough times and I really hope it’s not trivial me posting this at this time, just wondering if anyone has any insight or suggestions?

Take care

@drummondbass , you are under no obligation to disclose your MS until the deal is done. It does obviously help if your MS isn’t noticeable.

Point 1 of this section is the relevant part of the Equality Act, 2010 :_

I wish you good luck going forward. You don’t need the stress.

@drummondbass If you are made redundant your jobcentre will have a disability employment advisor (DEA) whosejob is to help disabled people into work.
