Things to remember

  • Living with a chronic illness, such as arthritis or a musculoskeletal condition, has the potential to impact your work life

  • It’s important to know your rights.

This can cause you hurt or embarrassment, or bring about a change to your terms of employment you weren’t expecting.


This information sets out the top four things you need to know to assist you in your journey. What you need to do might change, depending on the symptoms you develop over time.
