My husband worked for a good company here in S.C. He has worked for them for 5 years and has been on disability with them on and off for the past year and a half because of metastatic melanoma. He has been hospitalized because of a brain tumor they were able to remove. He is being treated with ZELBORAF and responding well to treatment. His company announced that they were laying off people in our area and he was on the list to be laid off. But he was then told that they would not lay him off while he was on disability. Well they laid him off, can they do this? We thought they had to keep him on disability until the doctors released him to return to work. The doctors have not released him, we are waiting to hear from an attorney to see if we have a case, I just wanted to see if anyone here had any experience with this or any knowledge of this topic. Any help is greatly appreciated.
