Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – Can My Employer Terminate Me For Filing A Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Yes, if the employer wants to terminate you they can, as Georgia is known as an “at will” state.  What that means is a Georgia employer can terminate someone for cause or no cause at all.

However, if you are injured and on light duty work restrictions when you are terminated, you may still be entitled to workers’ compensation income benefits.  Also worth noting is just because you are terminated does not mean your workers’ compensation claim ends.

If you have specific questions you should reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney.

Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
