Where a diagnosis of serious illness is not (or not initially) terminal, protection from discrimination would still be available where an employee’s condition fits the definition of a disability, which in the 2010 Act is defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.</p><p>Where a disabled employee is dismissed because they have a terminal illness, they can seek redress under the 2010 Act. Also, should an employer effectively force such an employee to resign from their job, the constructive dismissal provisions in employment law may be applicable.</p> more like this
