Am I protected from being fired because of my disability?

You may be protected if you:

  • are experiencing problems at work or have been fired because I am stressed out, sleep deprived and or am depressed.
  • are experiencing problems at work because of a mental or physical disability, even if that disability is temporary
  • are experiencing problems at work because I asked for workplace changes – like a modified workspace – due to a physical or mental disability, even if that disability is temporary

This may also apply if an employer is attempting to interfere with you taking leave for these reasons
