I got prostate cancer. The doctor told me that my last shot of my treatment was last April 2014 and I'm going back to the doctor for blood test and evaluation on Sept. 2014. I've been working from this company for about 10 years and they just laid me off just today. I thought I'm protected from getting laid off from my job if you have cancer. I have no issue with the company. I believed I did a good job with the company. I work at the shipping department and I'm the one who trained all that is working right now at the shipping department. They laid off few people today. I think I got laid off from job in my department because I got cancer which I could still function for my job. I even argued to my boss that why I got laid off not the guy whom I trained to do the job. The guy that is left there now is physically stronger than I do. Is there any discriminatory act the company did to me? Please advice. I really need a job. I got 3 kids and my wife is not working. Please advice. Thank you.
