CAN MY EMPLOYER FIRE ME IF I’M INJURED AT WORK?

One of the reasons that many workers fail to report their workplace injuries in a timely manner is that they are afraid of being fired. They may believe they have a valid workers’ compensation claim – but fear losing their vitally necessary paychecks. In fact, under most circumstances, it is illegal for an employer to fire a worker in retaliation for filing a claim.

If your employer unfairly lets you go after you report an on-the-job injury and file for workers’ compensation benefits, that employer may be guilty of illegal retaliatory discharge. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can guide you as to how to protect your right to sue your employer for committing this violation of labor laws if that becomes necessary.
