This answer was rated:

Is there pay protection during redeployment, I mean do I need to get paid for the period I am made to sit at home waiting for the new place to be deployed and actually not going to work, because old place not suitable due disability and new place still not found. How long the max the period can be by law? If not redeployed during this time what should employer do - dismiss due disability, any compensation?

Thank you for the question.  You should receive remuneration if you are not able to attend work.  The employer is required to consider any jobs you may be able to do, but that does not mean there will be one available.  If they are unable to find one then they can dismiss you on the grounds of capability.  Sadly, there is no "compensation" for this.  However, you will have a contract and your employer will require to pay you all of your notice pay as well as any holidays you have accrued that are not used.  The employer should also have looked at all reasonable adjustments that could have been made for you in your previous workplace.  You should ask your employer to confirm that you will be on "garden leave" when you are not working, in which case they should be paying you full pay.  If they. have failed in any part of this it could be a discrimination.
