More details to this question:
I was terminated from my job the day after I had a seizure at work. I was told that the termination was due to "poor performance." I was on a second probationary period.

Your seizure may qualify as a "disability", affording you protection under the ADA and FCRA, and if your employer used that as a factor in terminating your employment you may have a claim.  Review this with a lawyer if you suspect that your seizure was a factor in the decision to terminate your employment.  Thereafter, you may file a charge with the EEOC or Human Rights Commission.
