I've worked for my current employer for almost 8 years, but for the last 5 years have been battling them in relation to my disability (bi-polar) and am at the stage where it looks like I will have to lodge a second ET claim in as many years to get them to do what they are required to do by law. Unfortunately I have pretty much reached the end of my tether and am not sure I am able to cope with the stress of going through the stress of fighting my employer any more. However they have made me an offer of the equivalent of what I pay after tax as a lump sum plus 14 weeks pay in lieu...almost equivalent to my gross pay for a year. Is it worth taking this money and not having to worry about money for the next 16 months, or should I stick it out and potentially get even more ill? I am worried about being able to find another job what with us being in a recession at the moment...but we are planning to move to NZ as soon as my partner gets her degree and fonds a job there (she is heading for a 1st in an area she has lots of work experience and which is in demand)...I am really struggling to decide what to do.
