Help - losing my job - update

Thanks to everyone's help and a jolly good kick up my backside by me, I'm helping myself by compiling a file of everything I can find to help me with my case. It dates from 2009! I never realised my carrier bag filing would pay off! Taking days to sort out so wish I'd begun before. Anyway I have a union rep who is an equalities specialist, a dad who had to go through his workplace trying to dump him because he was better at his job and therefore better paid than the top man! Support from work colleagues, bless them all. Bless you all too for your help - it has made a big difference. I was losing hope and ready to throw in the towel, whereas now, if I lose the case it won't be for giving in and I have an idea of alternatives I could aim for - medical redundancy for one! But having found a map of the old/new place I think I can show why I was off sick so much - and it wasn't my fault or just FM! Wish I could tell you more but you never know who is listening! Anyway, when I can I will come back and fill you in. Thank you so much.

Soft hugs
