I work for a doctors office with 6 employees. I had an emergency surgery and will be out for 6-8weeks. I do not qualify for fmla. What other legal avenues are available as they said they might have to terminate me and hire a replacement. I live in Florida.

Do they offer disability insurance? FMLA would not cover your office size and most disability discrimination statutes such as the Florida Civil Rights Act and the ADA require at least 15 employees.
