24. Good advice in this thread

It's a total sucky deal for sure. Key points from the replies that I would endorse:

Keep in touch with work and other friends
Talk to a labor lawyer

I would look at option to share your story on LinkedIn or other work related media. While this may just be the usual heartless corporate move, there are a lot of good people and good companies in business that look for opportunities to get good employees even if they need a bit of unique accommodation. I also wouldn't hesitate to put a situation wanted job ad on Craigslist. Again, there are good folks looking to do good.

Every time I get in a discussion with people that say "he should just get a job", I try to remind them that even in areas like Seattle and Silicon Valley where there are lots of openings of all types, not everyone who would like to work is capable of the demands of the typical workplace-- be that getting there, their unique health status, health issues around kids or other dependents. Same goes for folks on Medicaid. Having to search out that 1 medical provider out of 100 who is willing to take Medicaid and then get on their waiting list and hope nothing goes wrong while they wait, is a horrible way for a great country to allow its neediest to live.

Wishing you the best...
