CHRONIC ILLNESS - EMPLOYMENT EQUITY
Unfortunately Schedule 8 of the labour relations act does protect your employer. Your employer can take action to effect a fair dismissal.
If you fall under the auspicus of the pension fund or some other retirement fund you probably could at least try to get "boardered". You need to speak to your doctor about it.
It is suggested that you do set up a meeting with your doctor and your employer as soon as possible in order to discuss your ongoing prognosis and your ability to effect productive work.
