I had surgery last year for colon cancer while on STD at the end of my 6 months on I received call from my manager that I have been terminated because my STD had expired. Also, that I wasn't entitled to severance pay. I worked for this for 32 years without any infractions and I am 62yrs old. I didn't sign anything, simply receive a call from my manager asking for my cell phone, laptop and I D badge back. I suspect my rights were violated but I don't know law. Please advise me and thanks in advance.
