What Are My Options If I Have Been Terminated From Work Due To A Disability?

Disability Benefits - Question 100
If you have been terminated due to a disability, you may have rights and remedies against your employer with respect to your wrongful dismissal and/or a right to file a human rights complaint. In addition, if you are disabled from the essential duties of your job, you should be given the opportunity to claim disability benefits. The question of whether you can be accommodated, or whether perhaps you are totally disabled because you are unable to complete the essential tasks of your job, can be difficult to answer on a general basis. If you are facing a situation like this and are unsure of what to do, you should consult an experienced disability and/or employment lawyer that is familiar with the implications of these potentially overlapping claims.
