I have a quick question - I have been called to a formal meeting at which HR has suggested is to decide whether or not to terminate my contract due to my sickness levels. They are aware that I suffer from endometriosis and that I have a large ovarian cyst (10cm and growing), as well as asthma (often affected by the endo as well as the recent heatwave). I've been on progestone but its likely that I will need an op- at the very least to remove the cyst.
I have been in touch with ACAS and he Equality Advisory Support Service as they feel this qualifies under the Equality Act as has been recognised as disability (so would come under the Disability Discrimination Act?) Do you know if endometriosis is recognised as a disability? (They also mentioned somethng about protected characteristics)
I'm trying to see my own GP to find out if this is the case, but just wondering if you were aware of endometriosis being recognised as a disability, and if so,where I might find more information.
