Yes, but not b/c you filed for work comp. Also, it gives you new rights for the injury. If you want to discuss, call us at (800) 517-1614.

No, if the reason for termination has nothing to do with the injuries that forms the basis of the WC claim, or race, religion and/or disability. Also, if no if there is a contract that is in effect and the termination is against the terms of that contract.

I hope this helps-
