The answer for this is yes and no.
You must be able to perform the essential functions of the job. If you can, then you might be protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Under the ADA, an employer must try to accommodate you by restructuring the job, or providing modified equipment, or modifying the work schedule etc. But, if any of these changes are quite expensive, so as to cause an undue hardship to the employer, then the employer does not have to go along with the ADA.
If you cannot perform any part of your previous job, then, unfortunately, you can be fired.Answer
However, if you are fired because you are unable to perform the duties of your job, the company may have to pay for your work-related permenant disability. Get a lawyer or talk to the Dept. of Labor. Essentially, you suffered an injury at work that incapacitated you. (Most companies would rather put you back to work than pay the settlement.)
A personal injury case is the legal system's way of trying to compensate an injured party for loss due to injury. In other words, if you get hurt during a car accident that is someone else's fault and can no longer work, personal injury law says that you may be entitled to get money from the person who caused the accident to help pay for hospital bills and make up for the time that you had to miss work.
Worker's compensation is insurance coverage for employees to compensate them in case they are injured while performing their job. The employer pays a premium that covers medical expenses and lost wages in case their employees are injured. If these benefits are excepted the hurt employee must release the employer of further liability. The insurance company pays the claim and the employee can no longer sue the employer for the injury.
Workers compensation is considered a sole remedy for first party injuries occurring at work. WC pays for the employees hospital bills and indemnity (payroll while off work). This is designed so the employee does not have to sue the employer to have bills paid. This also precludes the employee from being able to sue the employer. The employer can however be sued by the spouse or children due to the injured worker no longer being able to perform certain duties as a parent or husband. Employers Liabilityis a coverage for employers (in non-Monopolistic states called stop Gap) which covers them for lawsuits by family members or significant others who make claims against the employer for loss of consortium or other such claims in which the injured worker will no longer be capable of performing due to that specific injury. Fortunately, these are very hard to prove. Kevin Mershimer, CIC, CSP, OHST
A soldier is an actual service member of the military, whereas a contractor comes from an organisation outside of the military, which is contracted to perform services for the military. For example, Military Police no longer have the duties of policing the cantonment area, and a lot of these functions are now performed by private companies who have been hired to perform that function. Those are contractors.
