    Made redundant while on sick leave

    Made redundant while on sick leave 27th Jul 11 at 7:55 PM
    I have a life long illness and have worked part time with this for over a year now, but I have had to take some sick leave while my new medication is being organised and administered. I have been off now for 6 weeks and I have heard a whisper that my employer is going to make me redundant, I know this is because of the sickness as there is plenty work there for me. Is this allowed? Can my employer make me redundant while I am on sick leave? If so how much notice does he have to give me? I know I am still entitled to my holiday pay, but will this be paid as in my salary or the ssp I am receiving now?
    I am a single mother and have no idea what benefits I should be getting, so if someone has this advise also I would be very grateful.
