My mother was terminated from her position in October for "Falling asleep on the job." The employer claimed they had given her a verbal warning about a month prior to the day she was fired for sleeping at work. My mom does not remember receiving this warning.
She has hypothyroidism and she stated that she was feeling many of the symptoms that she had prior to be being diagnosed (Mainly feeling tired and sluggish). After being terminated, she went to her doctor and had her Thyroid levels reviewed. It turned out that her levels were extremely low. In fact the doctor said to her, "You should be in a coma." We had the doctor write a letter sharing these findings and started an appeal process with the employer. The termination was upheld. Does my mom have a case for wrongful termination?
