Before I left for surgery was told to take my tools home and asked to turn in my keys they were gonna have someone cover for me while I was gone
It depends. You should probably contact an attorney that specializes in employment law. Generally speaking Michigan is an "at will" employment state. This means unless you are a union employer or you have an individual contract for employment your employer can terminate you whenever and for whatever reason they want. There are exceptions to this rule such as the Family Medical Leave Act. But there are specific eligibility requirements to receive protection under this act. You may want to just file a complaint with the EEOC (313)226-7636. If you don't want to contact an employment attorney, the EEOC is probably your best bet.
