Hi, have you already been taken off the books and if so, when did that happen?
Have you contacted the employer to see what happened and why you were dismissed?
It is possible to dismiss an employee I they are off work and no longer capable of performing their job. However, the employer must follow a fair procedure, which has certainly not happened here. Also if you are disabled they should have tried t make reasonable adjustments to try and rehabilitate you back into work, which also did not happen, meaning they could also be guilty of disability discrimination.
Usually you can make a claim of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination and that must be made within 3 months of the date the acts complained of occurred, which would have been a couple of years ago. However, if you were not aware that this had occurred until recently, then you can argue that the time should start from now instead, meaning you have 3 months from the date you found out.
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
you are most welcome, all the best
