Re: Layoff while on workers' compensation
As long as you were not laid off because you filed your claim and it was necessary for your employer to carry on its business activities to hire an individual to do your job (which you could no longer perform due to your injury. However, it may be prudent to file a discrimination petition for a serious investigation into the matter. Please contact me directly at (619) 222-3504.
