Has anybody ever been dismissed because of asthma? I have worked in the same factory for 23 years and until recently my asthma was very much under control.
About 5 years ago my role changed and my asthma gradually became worse resulting in 999 calls and time off work.
I was referred to occupational health who advised me to stay off work until changes were made or another position was found. I was also sent to a private chest specialist who diagnosed occupationally aggravated asthma and advised me not to return to my old role unless changes were made.
My employer has made minimal changes and cannot find me another position. They are now starting procedures to terminate my employment due to capability.
Has this happened to anyone else, has anybody won an unfair dismissal claim for this?
