Can You Get Terminated When Receiving Workers’ Comp?

A work injury brings with it a variety of stressors, from obtaining workers’ compensation to worrying about job relations. Unfortunately, receiving workman’s compensation does not protect you from termination by your employer. This fear can bring a whole new level of stress to the table when coping with being injured on the job.

Because termination is a risk with any workers’ compensation claim, it is important that you understand all of your options. Should your employer choose to let you go you while you are out of work and receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you need to be prepared. It’s a good idea for any person in this situation to meet with an attorney. Our experienced attorneys provide guidance and assistance as well as help obtaining any necessary retraining to aid in job search efforts.

If you find yourself in a situation in which you are required to seek a new career following your work related injury, it is important to speak with an attorney to find out what options are available to you, so you can get back to work as soon as possible.
