Think twice before firing employee who needs to take short disability leave

in Discrimination and Harassment,Human Resources

Too many employers assume they can simply discharge a worker who isn’t yet eligible for FMLA leave, doesn’t have any other leave available and can’t work for a short period of time. That’s simply not always true. If the employee qualifies as disabled under the ADA, he may be entitled to a short leave as a reasonable accommodation.

“terminate the employee if he’s not ready to return by that date?” So it’s ok to terminate, as long as he is over his leave period, even when it’s still discrimination based on a health issue? Way to go at being a scumbag and teaching people how to LEGALLY discriminate.
