Injured Workers’ Concerns and Misnomers

 

 

I’m afraid I’ll be fired if I file a workers’ compensation claim.  Can my employer do this?

 

Virginia law does not allow an employer to fire an employee in retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim.  If you believe that your employer fired you in retaliation for filing a claim, contact the Virginia Department of Labor to file a complaint.
