I am currently working 16 hours a week as a housekeeper and have for the past 2 years. Before this I worked full time until 2011 when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I had an operation, chemo and radiotherapy and returned to work part time 11 months later, when I signed a contract. We now have a new manager who has said I need to reconsider my position and return full time! I told her I was not prepared to do this as I value my health. This is causing me stress, sleepless nights etc. I don't want to go in to work! I have been with this employer for 15.5 years. Can you tell me where I stand please as it is now making me ill?
