Terminated while on Disabilitygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread
I was a Sales Manager for my company for just less than 2 yrs. Five months ago I contracted cancer. Two months ago I went on disability. Today I was terminated. The owner claimed there wasn't enough profit anymore to pay my salary (very modest), although sales are up and the company makes money. Can I be terminated for this reason while I am out on disability? Is this legal?
