My jurisdiction is: Massachusetts/ Worcester I have worked for this company for five years. During the last year I had begun to get sick. Small symptoms at first joint pain, morning nausea, bad headaches. Then coworkers started to notice the limp from the joint pain in my legs and my skin color became white almost translucent, I also lost a lot of weight. I continued to work past the pain didn't take many days off, I tried to see my doctor before work or during lunch breaks. I liked my job and the people I worked with, I just needed to find out what was wrong with me. In September of 06 my boss wanted to speak to me, and he told me I was getting laid off, I would recieve six weeks severance pay and full unemployment pay. I couldn't get a reason for being laid off and concentrated on getting well. With the free time I started seeing my Doctor daily and after a few weeks we discovered a brain tumor that was damaging my pituitary gland which was causing the problems. Two surgeries later and the tumor was removed. I am still unemployed and thinking that I was unjustly terminated from my job.
