  • Laid-Off While Awaiting Surgery

    Can a California Employer lay you off while you are out on Workers' Compensation? I am having surgery at the end of the month and my employer telephoned today and said I am being laid off effective today due to cut-backs in the work force.

    As long as you were not out concurrently on the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) and were not singled out or discriminated against.
