  • Long-Term Illness

    A chronic illness or condition lasting for six months or longer. There is no law that requires an employer to keep a job open for an employee who can no longer fulfil their role. However, if an employer decides to prematurely end the employment relationship, they could face an unfair dismissal claim.

    An employer can only end the employment relationship if they strongly believe the employee can no longer do their job properly and it is unreasonable for the employer to keep the position open for them.
