If you are injured at work and are out on medical leave and the medical leave runs out is it legal for your employer to fire you even tho you have an ongoing workers compenstaion case and are 100% temporarily disabled by your doctors order?

  1. The short answer is it depends on your job and the actual reasons for your termination. You need a plaintiff-side employment lawyer to discuss whether your employer failed to give you a reasonable accommodation to get better and return to work. If you were hire to do a specific task, or had to complete a certain task within a specific time period, your employer may have good grounds but you need a one-on-one consultation.
