Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me. I was diagnosed with ME/CFS last year and it is fairly new to me. I am on an apprenticeship and my pay is supposed to go up every year. I was passing all of my exams and doing fine, but then I had a relapse and the brain fog was so severe that any revision I did was like reading a book and being stuck on the first sentence for 3 hours. This impacted my exams as I was struggling with my concentration. As a result, I failed 2 exams. This meant that I could not go onto the next level of my studies and have essentially dropped back a year. My peers have all received a pay rise and I have not. I was wondering what people's thoughts were on this as I can see that I have not passed as many exams as my peers, but at the same time I feel it unfair that I am being penalised for battling with my health issues. Despite my struggles, I have still managed to show to work/college every day and have received really good feedback from my managers. I brought this up with my manager and have now been offered 50% of what I should have got. So my peers are all earning more than me, despite being in the company for the same amount of time. Should I appeal this?
