Legal Question in Workers Comp in Michigan

I fell at my place of employment, had a closed head injury (still dealing with that), broken wrist, torn ACL. I was off on Workers Comp for 9 days when my boss (new...just bought company) sent me a letter and fired me. No reason given. Is that legal for him to do that?

If you can show that you were fired because you had a workers' compensation claim pending, then you have a case in addition to the workers' comp action. However, it is fairly difficult to show that you were fired for that reason. However, if you worked there for some time and had great job reviews and will get good testimony that you were an excellent worker, there may be something there. If so, let's talk.Otherwise, you still may want a lawyer involved in the workers' comp situation. So we should talk no matter what.
