Hiya, does anyone out there know anything about my employment rights or where I can get accurate information ?
I finished my chemo in July and was hoping to return to work in early December but this week, whilst I was away on my first break in ages, my employer rang me to tell me that they were closing the unit I work in and effectively I did not have a job to go back to. Talk about good timing !! I should perhaps add that I work in a hospice.
Does anybody know what rights, if any, I have ? Does my employer have to try to find me a job in another part of the organisation that I am physically capable of doing or can they just make me redundant ? If I have to leave should I be retired on health grounds and does anyone know what this entitles me to ?
I have worked for this hospice for 24 years and feel that I have just been dumped because they see me as a liability. Coping with cancer is a big enough trial in itself, I don't have to tell anyone on this site that, but this is the final straw.
Sorry about all the questions and my moaning.
