Work and MS
This booklet is for people with MS and their employers. It also has helpful information for health and social care professionals who work with people affected by MS.
Work and MS looks at working life when you have MS, everybody’s rights and responsibilities, the decision to tell people about MS, and ‘reasonable adjustments’. It also provides practical tools and sources of support to help manage the impact of MS.
This information could be useful for people anywhere in the UK, but some of the legal information does not apply in Northern Ireland. Seek local information if you are in Northern Ireland.
The booklet is split into three parts:
- information for everyone
- information for employers
- toolkit – tables, guides and questionnaires to make everyone’s job a little easier
- the impact of MS
- the employer’s perspective
- should I tell my employer?
- support from professionals
- time off work
- the law
- discrimination and harassment
- reasonable adjustments
- Access to Work
- what if I feel I am not being treated fairly?
