No, unless your medical condition is permanent and it prevents you from perfuming the essential functions of your job. If you are laid off due to medical reasons, you may have a lawsuit for disability discrimination as laying a person off due to disability is textbook disability discrimination in violation of federal law. I hope that helped. Please ask any follow-up questions. Please rate my answer so that I may be credited for my time. I thank you in advance for your cooperation. Thank you.
