The law for preservation of your job is the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). This provides to an injury, illness, and family emergency you should not be laid off for being absent for 90 days or less. If you have been absent more than this then the FMLA provides no protection. An employer can give you more protection then 90 days but most don't. If you have a disability but could do your job if the employer would accomadate your disability, then you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). I don't practice law in your state and you should talk to an employment lawyer in your state. This is not legal advice but information only.
