Fired After Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim?
In terms of employment law, California is an “at will” state. This means that your employer can terminate you for any reason not prohibited by law. But
what happens if you are fired after filing a workers’ compensation claim? Are you still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits? Can you sue your employer
to keep your job?
California Labor Code Section 132a makes it illegal for an employer to fire, threaten to fire, or discriminate against an employee for filing a workers’
compensation claim. If your employer has treated you in this way, you have rights. You may be able to obtain reinstatement in your job, as well as back
pay and benefits, expenses and additional compensation in the form of a penalty assessed against your employer.
