Credit card charges: Employers struggling to manage workplace illness

People struggling with credit card charges may be concerned to hear that many employers appear to be struggling with managing workplace illness.

Research by Legal & General has revealed that 15 per cent of GPs see patients who have been dismissed from their workplace during illness on a regular basis.

Findings show that 50 per cent of GPs see these people a few times a year.

In the north east, five per cent of GPs reported that they see someone who has been dismissed from their job during illness every week.

Dr John Delfosse, a practising GP and Legal & General's consulting medical officer, said: "I have seen patients who unfortunately have been dismissed during a period of illness, usually occurring during the early part of their absence. 

"There is no doubt that being at work is good for your well-being and unemployment can adversely alter the course of a period of ill health."
