Hello everyone, I am employed by a large company and was in a very stressful position. 3 years ago I began suffering with a mental illness that prevented me from returning to work. During this extended time of absence my employer split the paying of my wages with an insurance company who required me to visit cognitive meetings with psychiatrists once a year. My mental illness has not improved and as a result I have been offered a 'pay off' by the insurance company to leave the company. This pay-off is the equivalent of 6 years salary after tax (so quite a sizeable amount). Although I have never told my employer this, I hold them solely responsible for my mental illness. The stress they placed me under during my 10 year employment with them was excessive and destroyed my life. I have always thought that they felt the same, as they have generally given me a wide berth and not pushed me to return or asked me how I was feeling. That said, I think if I were to tell them that I held them accountable, they would probably withdraw the offer and 'lawyer up'. I do't know whether I should be seeking legal advice at this point, or just accept the offer and hope that someday I can get back on my feet again. Furthermore, I would like to know if I am legally entitled to any holiday payment from my employer for the holiday I did not use in the year I was still active at the company? Thanks in advance for any advice.
