Good morning, Florida is an "at-will" state (with a few limited exceptions). Depending on the size of the employer, you may be subject to FMLA protections. Otherwise, unless there is an employment contract in place, an employee can quit at any time and an employer can fire an employee at any time. Unless the reason for the firing is illegal, such as a protected class or whistleblower protection, you can be fired while on sick leave.
