Can an Employee Be Fired While on Medical Leave in California?

In California, employees are also entitled to leave for a serious health condition under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). Due to the current economy and uncertain job security, many workers question if they will have a job when they come back from leave, or if they should risk taking medical leave at all. Some employees worry that they will be fired while on medical leave.
