Can I Get Fired From My Job for Filing a Workers’ Comp Claim?

Your employer cannot fire you or demote you for filing a workers’ comp claim. Sometimes, employers will use this fear tactic to deter their employees from filing for workers’ comp, but you should never feel bad about filing a claim. Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that is designed to protect both the employer and employee when injuries do occur. Having an experienced workers’ comp attorney on your side can help to ensure that you do not experience any retaliation from your employer.
