I broke my leg and ankle at home. I filed for fmla and std on january 26, my fmla ends march 14. I filed a request for leave since my job said i cant return to work on restriction from dr but dr wont release me to non restriction until june 1st. They said

Can i be terminated or do i have a case for wrongful termination under ada as i am currently disabled.

You may have a claim under the ADA for failure to accommodate, if they made no effort to truly investigate whether you could do your job or a similar one with the restrictions. Check with your local EEOC office.
