Medical Leave Termination Lawyer Bethesda MD
Have you recently lost your job? Well, most states are “employees work at will” states, which means you can be fired at any time, for no reason at all—or for any reason at all. There is nothing really stopping employers from letting an employee go, aside from the fact they want to do so.
But there are some exceptions to the at-will rule.
Some such exceptions are:
- If an employee is covered by a union, there are contractual provisions that state when and how an employee may be fired.
- If company policy details how and when an employee can be terminated, and whether warnings are required prior to being fired.
- If you have a contract in place that outlines the terms of your employment, there will be a statement about when you can be fired.
- Public policies such as workers’ compensation may also protect an employee from being fired.
And of course, discrimination can affect whether an employee is fired or not—well, discrimination is why you may want to seek a lawyer such as the lawyers at Eric Siegel Law.

Those earlier exceptions addressed can also play into being fired for discriminatory purposes—whether that’s because you went on medical leave, have children and go on parental leave, or have a disability and require accommodations (sometimes leave is accommodation of certain disabilities). Say you have an employment contract and your employer fires you after you have something happen that requires you to stay home with an injury that’s being treated—meaning you take medical leave.
If you can prove this is discriminatory, and you can with Eric Siegel at your side, you may receive your job back, or a settlement that amounts to the lost wages you’ve experienced since being fired. A good lawyer is a difference between knowing what you’re worth and getting what you’re worth.
