Evening all,  I would be grateful for any advice please.  

 

I have worked for a local authority for 24 years,  I recently put in a request for VR.  

 

This was refused on the basis that I did not fit the criteria.  

 

The criteria was =    

1, Those who were HIGH risk shielders during lockdown in March,  

2, Those already flexi retired/part time,  

3, Lastly longest serving.  

 

I myself were classed as Moderate shielding so not excepted.

However I am in the protected characteristic category  re - Mental Health and other medical conditions and yet my request was refused.

 

Any advice or questions appreciated.

 

Thanks

hi ya

 

i've popped you post into the employment forum

our specialist on those laws are there

i don't think you'll get seen in the special needs forum.

 

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hello,

 

I am not understanding why you feel mental health meets the selection criteria -  to my eye, it doesn't. If it is severe enough, are you looking for ill health retiral, not redundancy?

HI, Sorry should maybe have been clearer, What my point was they have used covid for one part of the criteria, and flexi retired, and then long serving, no consideration for those that are covered under the mental health act 2010, Advice I've been give and its only advice, was my disability is a protected characteristic, and I have other long term illnesses, Ive spoken to HR and they are saying the manager can choose who he likes, my thoughts are that by choosing High risk shielders, they are totally overlooking any forms of disability, hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give,Beau

Hi,

 

so they have set the criteria of shielders - perhaps because thy are least able to come to work? So the selection criteria is really "can you come to work."

 

Who agreed that criteria? Is there a union?
