Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) may affect your working life. For example, you might need to have time off or alter your work pattern. Adapting to this and having discussions with your employer can be stressful.
This leaflet – written by a PKD patient – aims to give you some starting points on where you stand with equality laws and how you might approach issues with your employer. Please also seek personalised advice from specialist organisations such as Citizen’s Advice and the Equality Advisory & Support Service (contact details below).
