Does Workers’ Compensation Protect My Job?

If you have suffered a job-related injury and are unable to work as a result, your employer and its insurer are required to provide workers’ compensation benefits for medical benefits and wage loss. However, they are not required to hold your specific job open for you or find a new job for you when you are ready to return.

This does not mean that there is no chance for you to return, and in many cases, other options are available to preserve employment opportunities. The experienced lawyers at the law firm of Jeffrey S. Gross can help you identify your options and make sure you are being treated fairly as you recover.

Does workers’ comp protect my job? Not necessarily, but we will protect you. Call 215-512-1500 for a free, confidential consultation.

Can I Get Fired Or Lose My Job?

It is against the law for an employer to retaliate against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim. But this does not mean your employer may not “find” another reason to terminate your employment after you file a claim. If your employer is treating you unfairly, we will be your strongest advocate for making sure you get the benefit you are entitled to.

Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

In some cases, the Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can be used to preserve some form of employment while you are out with your injury. This does not mean your exact position will be available. We can counsel you on whether this is a beneficial option to pursue in your case.
