I've know a person, let's call them X, for over 10 years. X works in the public service, like I do, but we work in different places in very different roles - X is a scientist, I am a frontline clinician. There have been many job cuts in our service over the last few months, and probably more to come. The field I work is fundamentally about getting people back to previous roles, so deals with return to work etc. X tells me the other day she has been to a chiropractor (which any one is the Health system would understand, there are doubts about credibility) who took an X-ray (which would be unethical) and to the Chiro and X it "was clear there are obvious spinal issues" (X who's uni degree was based on plant studies, and didn't pass biology let alone anatomy). X said she was going to go to get "worker's compo" (exacts words, which to me is incredibly offensive) because someone else she worked with "got three months off" so surely she "deserves" the same. X has been complaining about "back pain" for the 12 years I've known her, to me it is clearly not related to a "workplace injury" as X is now claiming (she has worked in said job for over 7 years, so surely the onus would be on her anyway). I'm torn because people lots of people I work with/have worked with have lost their jobs, where as X clearly trying to manipulate the system, should I let HR etc. know that this was a long term condition so other people don't have to sacrifice their jobs? Or should I keep my mouth shut?
