Injured Worker Alert!!!
Reinstatement After Layoff
In this economy, it is common knowledge that many companies look to lay off their injured workers first. You may be on physical restriction at work, such as “light duty,” and find yourself out of a job. You may ask yourself whether you still have rights under workers’ compensation law now that you no longer have a job.
You DO have rights. You may be surprised to find out that you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits after your layoff or termination. You are also entitled to continuing medical treatment.
Our attorneys have fought numerous Reinstatement Petitions over the years. We are in a position to help advise you if you are subject to a layoff and, indeed, aggressively pursue your rights.
