Re: employer termination while on long term disability

An employer may terminate an employer on long-term disability, but I say that with some quaifications. The employer will still have to comply with state and federal laws such as the Family Leave Act. They should also have a consistant approach to terminating workers on LTD that does not discriminate against workers on an illegal basis, such as race, gender, national origin, religion. Hope this answer helps. It is a very general answer because your question had very little facts. If you are concerned you should talk with a local employment attorney in your area.
