After being injured outside of the job, I was required to take six weeks off of work for recovery. After reporting that I would need six weeks off of work for recovery, I was fired. Because I have not worked at the company for long enough, I am not eligible for leave. I was wondering if the company is required to hire a temporary employee to do my job until I am able to come back, because the company currently uses temporary employees. Is this a reasonable accommodation? What are my rights?
