Crown Point, IN asked in Employment Law for Indiana

Q: Can I be terminated while on Covid LOA?

I have been on Covid LOA since March. Today I received an email from Sedgwick (the company that takes care of all that) stating that my leave was closed because they were informed my employment ended (with Walmart) on 11/6/20. I wasn’t notified that this was going to happen or anything. Do I have any rights that would help me?

A: You may have an argument that your continued leave was a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. You should contact an employment attorney in Indiana to go over the specifics of your leave and separation.
