    Can you be laid off or fired while on short-term disability in California?

    If you can be laid off, are you eligible for unemployment benefits when your disability runs out?

    Not likely fired, that's grounds for a wrongful dismissal lawsuit, you can't be fired for something when your not even there. Laid off is a possibility but not because your on short term disability the company would have to be having problems and lay off others at the same time.
