We are currently experiencing high volume of inquiries regarding recent employment termination due to COVID-19. As this is also a new and novel area, things are constantly evolving, however the most basic information we can give you to help at this time is as follows:

Under FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) and the Employment Act, you may (or may not depending on the circumstances) have a cause of action for your termination against your employer, only if:

1. You have obtained a doctor’s note confirming you are diagnosed with COVID-19;

2. You notified your employer about the diagnosis; and

3. Employer then terminated your employment due to your diagnosis.

If the above requirements are met, you should consult with an attorney immediately as you may have a legal course of action.
