This is a technicality I haven't dealt with in ages, and I think the procedures probably differ somewhat in different companies and industries. AMong our excellent usual readers there are some I think who would know this issue well, and maybe after the long weekend they'll find this message and reply really usefully.
BUT I do think you need advice from a labour lawyer and the Dept of Labour, as it should be illegal and is certainly improper and an unfair labour practice for any amployer to effectively sack an employee for being diagnosed with any illness, including this one.
And they cannot now try to cover up for their dirty motivations by suddenly pretending to be dissatisfied with your performance, especially if there have been no written and formal complaints before now.
Do get formal advice from a lawyer, even a trade union if there is one applicable to you. This sounds like highly shabby behaviour on the part of this employer
