Termination as a result of a Georgia workers' compensation claim.

Sadly, employers frequently terminate injured workers after they file a workers' compensation claim. In Georgia, if your employer terminates you as a result of your work injury the workers' comp insurance carrier is required to pay you income benefits as long as your doctor has you on light duty work restrictions. The Georgia Workers' Compensation Act requires that they continue to pay you income benefits for 350 weeks, until you return to work for another employer, or until your doctor releases you to normal duty unrestricted work.
