Employment advice please


#1

Hi 

i'm looking for some advice please, i work part time nights (16hrs per week)

I have recently been off work for 6 weeks due to low blood pressure which resulted in incidents of dizziness.

prior to this i worked full time 32hours.

my employer has now referred me to occupational health which is understandable, however, they mentioned something about safety of employees working nights with a long term illness, 

basically, im wondering if anybody has heard of such a law and what my best tactic would be as i dont want to give up work, 

thanks in advance
