Let say someone is in a comma for 10 years. There basically asleep for 10 years of their life. They wake up and after the initial celebration of their return, what happens? I don't think and employer would hold someone's job for that long amout of time.

Everyone should be happy if one wake up from a coma for 10 years, but 10 years is such a long time, everything had been changed alot, even the employer would hold the job, the employee, the technology ,etc will be different or my be even employer is not there anymore, there is also a loss of connection of what happen in the country or in the world, so it may take a lot time for him/ her to adapt to the NEW life , and lots of assisntnace should be offered to him. her in order to get back to normal life.

Well, I agree, ten years is a long time to hold a job for someone. Before they are able to return to work anyway, they will need lots of physical therapy to rebuild their muscles. They probably would qualify for disability payments for quite a while! I guess once they were physically and mentally able they would have to look for another job, unless their former employer really valued them and would offer them another position.
