    Hi and welcome to the community 

    It isn't a legal requirement to pay compensation for medical dismissal however some employers do pay this a bit like a redundancy payment calculation 

    You will have to see what your company policy is regarding this request a copy of the policy from hr 

    I'm not sure what you mean about how this will affect your pension you will need to contact you'd pension provider as all pensions have different terms and conditions . if you stop work your pension contributions end and as such your pension freezes till retirement age.

    Thank you,
    Just had a meeting with company they laughed said they will pay my unused holiday.
    Even  though I'm covered by 2010 disability act they do not wish to make any changes have offered to reduce my hours or work different location 
    Been told go back full time do my job or leave.
    After all they not changed their mind from descion made last year,had to wait 8 months and demand occupational health get involved
