Can I be terminated for having work restrictions ordered by a doctor?

I am employed with my present employer for 1 year. I have a low back injury that took place 20 years ago. I have since been under a doctor’s care and have been put on work restrictions. I was advised today by my supervisor that I am to request that my doctor remove the restrictions or else I will loose my job. It’s my employer’s policy that no one is allowed to work if they have work restrictions.
