Re: Working full-time - do you have reasonable adjustments

Further to my post under "working with ME" In my experience some employers are reluctant to acknowledge the diagnosis and therefore their obligation to make reasonable adjustments. I was unable to work full time but would have loved the opportunity to try one day a week split over 2 half d...
