My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Michigan. While written off of work due to a slipped disk in my back. My employer fired me within the written time off that my doctor gave me. To make matters worse I was still going to work during my written time off because I my employer did not want me to take the time off. Was it legal to fire me? I have spoke with half a dozen lawyers and not a single one of them can answer the question, "Can I be fired while written off on a doctors note?". Are there any laws written regarding this situation if so I need a link to it. I have a medeation meeting with my past employer at the EEOC and I need this to back me up. Many people have told me that I should have never been allowed to even work untill I was cleared to go back from my doctor. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!
