Can I be Fired While on Disability Medical leave? Yes, unless you are fired because you took the disability or FMLA leave. Your employer is free to fire you for another reason (reduction in force, lay off, performance issues before the leave) even if you are on disability or FMLA leave. If you were terminated while on medical leave, please consult an attorney to determine if you have a claim. If you were terminated on workers’ compensation leave, please consult a workers’ compensation attorney. If you don’t know one, we would be happy to provide you with a referral.
