Does anyone have any experience of early ill health retirement?
I am a lawyer doing an already stressful job and have been told today that I am being transferred to another part of my organisation which in my view deals with work of an even more stressful nature. I feel that even attempting that type of work is very likely to make my symptoms worse and if I am not sucessful in challenging the decision to move me, I am thinking that I should ask to be retired on ill health grounds. What has to be proved to get retired in that way and what sort of terms am I likely to get? (Only after ballpark idea as I realise all employers are different - mine is civil service.)
If anyone has any experience of this area or has any idea where I can get any advice I would appreciate it.
