The letter states:
I must inform you that a possible outcome from the hearing may be termination of your contract of employment on the grounds of ill-health capability.
Taking on board the reasons for my current ill health by completing a Risk Assessment;
I feel there is acknowledgement of how stressful my role is by my employer advising it is taking more staff to complete me OM tasks - surely working with me on my rtw date (30/07/12) is more effective for the organisation than its current situation? My employer states these said staff are feeling stressed - doesn't this also acknowledge why I am ill?
This is all new to me, hence me asking your legal advise - I want to be able to rtw, if not for my current empoyer, then with another organisation. Being dismissed will not help me in the future. I have given 12 years to this organisation and after 3 months of serious ill health, they are allowed to show me no support and terminate my contract!
