Are you still getting ACC? If not then you could apply for a WINZ benefit to cover some of the gap.but if you are clear for work, they must either take you back, or you will have a claim for unfair dismissal. If they wanted to discipline you about the accident they must do so, and not keep you waiting. Your next step will have to be to ask if they are going to keep you on, or if they intend firing you, that you will claim a personal grievance for unfair dismissal.
You need to take the report to ACC and explain what has happened and that you cannot drive, and ask for the ACC to continue, as you cannot work. Otherwise you will need to apply for a benefit through WINZ
