information for my employer

Postby Mike » Thu Jul 29, 2004 9:44 am

hello,

can anyone direct me to any websites where I can get information for my employer about dialysis and transplantation? I've got some info off NKF site but I am looking for information regarding disability rights as well

I will be very grateful for any information

Hi Elaine,

Thank you very much for that, I've got to have a meeting with my boss about the implications of dialysis & sickness and sorting out what my rights are.

Think NKRF may do a booklet called 'What I tell my employer about kidney disease..' 0845 300 1499

Also see CAB site.. http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/nm/index/ ... oyment.htm


Good luck with it and let us know how meeting goes
