Agoraphobia and working from home

Alex987654321 Community member Posts: 7 Listener
Hi I need some advice. I have had anxiety for many years but recently I have gotten worse and now have agoraphobia. As a result I am unable to go out alone. For the past 3 months I have been working from home, however the company do not want this to carry on and said they need someone in the office so I will either have to leave or go on sickness benefit. As I have worked there a while can they do this? Obviously I am finding it quite stressful and I want to continue to work.
