Time of Work. - March 28th 2010, 09:01 PM

First time here, need some advice...

I am currently working for a building company and use to work weekends from 14-16, I left school and went 6 days a week (I’m now 18). Pay is great and I really enjoy it. 2 weeks ago we were putting plasterboard on the ceiling when the support slipped out and i was left holding it on my own and well, I was left screaming. This is the problem, he is self employed so I’m not getting paid for time of work and running out of money fast. The doctor has said i need to rest my back for 2 months + and it will never be as strong as it was. To simplify it, Do i go back to work in a week or 2 and risk serious injury... Or will I need to job a new job in a less labour intensive job?

As for legal advice... Don’t have a clue where to go.

You should be able to get reimbursement from being injured on the job. If they don't then I highly recommend bringing it to the labour board. This is only if things are the same in the UK as they are here in Canada.
