Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name isXXXXX am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Did you ever apply for FMLA?
dID THE EMPLOYER HAVE 50 OR MORE EMPLOYEES?
If the employer has 15 or more employees,
and you feel the termination was due to yoru disability,
you can file a discrimination complaint against the employer for the termination,
under the law it is against the law for an employer to terminate an employee for their disability,
The office enforces the Arizona Civil Rights Act (A.R.S. Section 41-14 01 et seq.), by investigating complaints involving discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability and familial status in employment, housing, disabilities, public accommodations and voting.

Be aware only FMLA provides job protection, so legally the employer can terminate you while on leave,
however if it was solely based on your disability, that would be discrimination and you can file a complaint, and sue the employer for the termination
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
If satisfied please provide us with positive feedback, thank you
