He may have claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act and/or the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, as well as the Family Medical Leave Act. Far more details are needed to assess the merits of these types of claims. I suggest he contact a lawyer who handles employment discrimination cases immediately because there are relatively short time periods to bring these types of claims. He should also sign up for unemployment compensation benefits if he has not already done so. My firm handles all types of employment-related cases. Fee free to call me at (412) 471-6463 for a no cost, no obligation telephone consultation.
