Is this more than just a workers' compensation claim?

Let's say you suffered a catastrophic on-the-job injury at a New Jersey construction site. You're injured and you can't go to work for the time being because your injuries are so severe. In fact, maybe you'll never be able to work again. You're probably wondering whether you can pursue additional financial damages against an at-fault party in addition to whatever benefits you're receiving from the state's workers' compensation program. In certain cases, the answer might be "yes."

Can my employer fire me after I suffer a workplace injury?

An injured worker who is unable to carry out his or her job duties will need to spend time at home recuperating and healing from his or her injuries. During this time, it could happen that an employer decides to terminate the employee. This is completely unlawful in most cases and the terminated employee may be able to file a wrongful termination and/or discrimination complaint against the employer.
