Disability / Medical Condition – Termination for taking too much Medical Leave

Emanuel Shirazi

Michael is a hard working Los Angeles native who brought a strong passion to his field of work. Michael performed his duties with excellence and was very well liked by co-workers, clients, and supervisors.

Michael was diagnosed with COVID and he required medical leave. Unfortunately, his symptoms were severe and long term so his medical leave was extended several months.

Michael provided all requested medical leave of absence documentation from his doctors. In response, Michael’s employer told him that he would be fired if he did not cut his leave early and come back a few days before his doctor stated he could return. Michael could not return and was summarily fired because his employer would not wait a few more days for him to heal.

Michael was fired because his Employer had an illegal 6 month maximum leave policy. Maximum medical/disability leave policies are illegal in California.
