What is the law regarding the termination of person covered under the ADA?
Question Details: I have been employed at my job for 4 years and have had FMLA for COPD for 2 years. I have used all my FMLA allotted for this calendar year but still have 45 hours of vacation and comp time as well as short long term disability should I require it. My physician was asked to complete and return forms about further accommodations that may reduce the amount of absences which she did. Today I was called to HR and given a document titled "RE Work Accommodations" in it they said that they can not continue to accommodate me in my current position sighting my doctor's recommendations that I may need additional 3-4 days as often as 3-4 times per month. I have the doctors answer to my employer which clearly states an additional 3-4 days as often as once a month or none at all as they can not predict if or when I may experience a flare up. My employer continued to verbally tell me that as of today I am terminated even though the letter I they gave me states they would like to offer me a position where they could better accommodate frequent absences and that I have until September 3rd to accept this position . I was told not to report to work and wait for them to contact me for my decision. The HR person told me the job they had for me it is in un -airconditioned building they know I can not work in. My understanding is that I am not terminated until Sept. 3rd that is what the letter states. Do I show up for work tomorrow? Do I expect them to make accommodations? They are hiring in all departments currently and have many positions available in the department that I currently work in on all shifts there are jobs there I can do. I will lose 45 hours of pay between now and September 3rd. I don't know what to do?
