Your company cannot fire you in return for filing a workers' compensation without risking serious repercussions. Though South Carolina is an "at-will" state, meaning your employer can fire you at his/her will, retaliatory firings are not allowed. With that in mind, if you've been injured at work, we recommend that when you return to work, be a model employee. Don't give your employer any reason to let you go.
No injured worker should have to worry whether filing for workers' comp is going to get them fired. If you want to make sure your legal rights are protected, our team of personal injury lawyers are here to help.
