I was diagnosed with Leukemia late in September of 2017. I went on FMLA and my job was protected for 12 weeks.
After 12 weeks, my employer provided me with a reasonable accommodations questionnaire. My doctor replied to the questionnaire and indicated that there is no reasonable accommodation that my employer could make that would allow me to return to work at this time. My return to work was estimated at a year's time as I am scheduled to go through a stem cell transplant.
As a result, my employer advised me that since there is no reasonable accommodation that would allow them to hold my position open any longer, they were terminating my employment with the company. My long term disability benefits continue to be in effect until I am cleared to return to working.
Any case for wrongful termination here?
