If my doctor puts me on light duty, can my employer terminate me? Posted on June 22, 2011

My doctor wants to put me in those walking cast boots for an unknown amount of time. I drive a forklift and would be unable to perform my normal duties. Can my employer terminate me while I am under doctor’s orders? Is my employer obligated to find work that I can perform during the time I am unable to drive a forklift?
