Workers’ Compensation | TerminationOn September 21, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hello, my name is Steven Cohen and I’m the chairman of the Workers’ Compensation Department at Davis, Saperstein and Salomon. Today I’m going to talk to you about termination or ‘firing’ in a workers’ compensation case. It is illegal for an employer to fire an employee because they got hurt at work, or because they’re pursuing a workers’ compensation case. If that happens, I generally refer the employee to an employment lawyer or directly to
bring a case through the divisional workers’ compensation for the wrongful termination. In short, It’s illegal for an employer to fire or
discriminate a worker because they’re bringing a workers’ compensation case. For more information regarding your
rights, and a wrongful termination claim against an employer by virtue of bringing a workers’
compensation case, Call us now at 1-800-LAW-2000 for a free and confidential consultation. Thank you for watching.
