Based on what I've read, I think that there employees are protected from termination based on certain protected activities, such as filing a safety complaint. Is there anything similar that applies to an employee who is sick due to a medical condition?
Additionally, based on what I've read, if an employee has a medical condition, an employer can still legally terminate them if their performance is poor and is not related to that medical condition. However, does that apply if their lackluster performance is because of that medical condition? Does that depend on the kind of medical condition?
