    Terminated while on Short Term Disability

    I was recently terminated from my job while out on short term disability (my FMLA ran out). I have lupus and was told by my Dr. that this qualifies under the American Disabilities Act and that it is illegal. Is this true in Florida?

    You need to consult directly with a knowledgeable employment law attorney, not a physician, concerning a potential claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    The question in your case will likely come down to whether your employer should have accommodated you in light of your disability. Without knowing more background facts, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to assess whether you had a potential ADA claim. Nothing you have presented so far would lead one to that conclusion.
