Not Rehired After An On-The-Job Injury?

Bar Association Approved

Have you suffered an injury at work and thought about what happens to your job while you are on Workers' Compensation? Much like the Family Medical Leave Protections Act, there are legal protections in place to help secure your employment while you recover from your injury. This means your employer is often required to welcome you back to an equal level of employment upon your return, but it's not a guarantee.

The legal requirements vary - every person and every employment situation is different. Some employers may improperly terminate you from employment after an on-the-job injury. If your employer does not rehire you once you can return to work, it is a good idea to contact a wrongful termination lawyer.

A wrongful termination lawyer can assist you in case your employer does not rehire you after you recover. Keep in mind that there are many rules, regulations and requirements that may or may not apply to your situation. In most cases, if there is suitable employment, your employer should offer you your position. If your employer refuses to rehire you without reasonable cause, you may be eligible a victim of wrongful termination.

A position should be offered to you if the employment available falls within your injury restrictions. A labor law lawyer can help ensure your employer is treating you fairly and lawfully.

If you believe your employer lacked good reason for not rehiring you, a labor law lawyer can help you file an application for a formal hearing. Contact Attorney Search Network to be referred to a labor law lawyer that can help.
