Under the Equality Act 2010 you are considered disabled from the moment of diagnosis with cancer. This means that, unlike other disabilities, you do not need to show that the condition is long term or has any symptoms. 
If you feel your dismissal was because of your cancer, or related to your symptoms, your dismissal may have been unfair and discriminatory. Employment law claims can seem daunting, but this shouldn't stop you from getting a fair resolution.  
Our guide covers the 5 key questions we get asked most often about claims for Unfair Dismissal relating to cancer discrimination: 
 
1. Have I been unfairly dismissed? 
2. Have I been discriminated against? 
3. What are my options? 
4. How long do I have to make a claim? 
5. What outcome could I hope for? 
6. Can I afford to make a claim? 
 
It will also help you to consider what your next steps should be.
