What does ‘raise a concern’ about a health condition mean?
An employer could ‘raise a concern’ about how you managed a health condition if:
- your behaviour or performance was affected
- you didn’t follow independent medical or workplace advice about how to manage risks relating to your health condition
- you didn’t tell your employer about risks relating to your health condition.
An employer could ‘raise a concern’ about how your health condition affected your ability to work if it:
- caused you to act unprofessionally
- led to you being unable to perform your role as a doctor
What is informal communication?
Your employer might talk to you or email you informally after you’ve been unwell to make sure you’re well enough to return to work. We don’t consider this to be raising a concern.
