Yes. Medical leave does not restrict what you do on your own time.
The only exception is if you are on medical leave fraudulently, you could be liable for civil or criminal penalties, as well as dismissal. That is pretty much limited to people who collect benefits for a broken back and are caught playing basketball.

edit: So now from technician I will be a buyer of phones and my hours can decrease even more if I don't get enough phones per day. I really didn't want my position changed at all.
You had a note from a doctor, or were you actually out on disability? My nieces ex-husband was out on disability for a very long time and then he came back to work, and couldn’t handle it and had to go back out on disability. Finally they had to replace him. It was a small family owned business as yours is. They simply were not able to carry that position and pay two people for it. They had to hire someone. How long were you out? Is this company able to carry-on without replacing your position? The rules for small businesses are very different than those for big business, for good reason.

I had a note From a doctor, but I am not out of unemployment disability. I am however on disability from the government, and I do update them every month with my pay stubs. Without me working they couldn't operate two stores and I understand him needing to have another person cover me. I just didn't know why my original position wasn't held for me. I am out still and if everything goes well I would be out total of 3 weeks.

he is however, being fair cause I can earn my position back, as he says but he wants to make sure I am reliable first and perform well. I will be working just working for him but have a different position in the company.

I call BS on the "You can earn your way back" if he does this now, what will he do next time? Get another job and walk away...

You are right cause in the past I worked for him and I was fired...I now work for him again only because, he bought the company I was at, now working for him for 6 months so I do agree with you as he can be sly. I appreciate the advice too.

So I am suppose to start this week and my boss said.... He was going to give me some time but I should just work from home on commission. How would I be eligible for unemployment if I turn this down or how should I turn it down?

Why do you want to turn it down?

I would recommend calling Ask Jan on Monday.

This is the Job Accommodation Network - its a free, confidential program that advises people about employment issues related to sick leave, disability, etc.

They have a toll-free number and it appears they may have added an on-line chat program as well.
