Terry Heney Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 (edited) Hi all. Terry here from Adelaide South Australia.. I'm 54 years of age and I have a problem.. Last weekend I admitted myself to a Hospital due to Heart rate up at 180 (Atrial Fibrillation)...problem was resolved over a two day period..Went to work following Wednesday but my head regarding little speach and not know exactly what my surroundings were my wife decided I should get back to Hospital. Anyhow to cut a long story short after many tests and scans there was NO EVIDENCE of I having a stroke YET due to the laws over here they were forced to place a driving ban on me for 4 weeks.. Fine I can live with that BUT with my work I drive a ute to companies to service fire extinguishers...Told my boss about the 4 week ban on driving and that after 4 weeks I would be clear by doctors to drive again...My company has deemed me a risk or liability so they are basically sacking me in 4 weeks time.. Any one out there believe the decision by my company on me is allowable ? In other words is this discrimination or unfair dismissal on their behalf..? thanks Terry Edited October 19, 2012 by Terry Heney no longer required Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
