Fired because of a Georgia workers' comp claim.

One of the questions that most frequently arises in Georgia workers' compensation claims is "can my employer fire me because of my workers' comp claim?" That is a very complex question. If an employer terminates an employee who has filed a workers' compensation claim they have arguably lost the ability to make an offer of light duty employment to the injured worker. Further, if the termination is related to the job injury and the worker has restrictions, then the employer likely owes workers' comp income benefits to the injured worker. If you feel you have been fired as a result of your Georgia workers' compensation claim, contact Atlanta, GA workers' comp lawyer Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
