Fired Because Cannot Travel

Recommended Posts

I am just coming off of STD for a heart attack. I have been told that I am not allowed to travel for one year. While travel is necessary periodically, it is not a key component of my job. I do not believe it is listed as required in my job description. Can my employer fire me if I have a doctor's note stating travel is not allowed for one year?  I work in TN, but company is based out of CT.

These are the questions I asked you in the other forum:

 

How big an employer is this?
Is travel an essential function of your job? 
How much travel are we talking about?
What kind of travel is restricted? All travel, to include trains and busses? Air travel only? Travel of only x miles or more? Overnight travel? 
How long were you on STD?

Doesn't want me on a plane due to hard to get quick medical attention.  First-year rate of heart bypasses failing is high.
