Can I Be Fired for Filing Workers’ Compensation?

If you have been injured on the job, you may have concerns over whether your employer can fire you as the result of filing for or receiving workers’ compensation benefits.

Unfortunately, Georgia’s ‘employment at will’ doctrine does allow for injured workers to be let go in the aftermath of an injury.

At the same time, our Atlanta and Augusta workers’ compensation attorneys can advise you on how you may be able to take action against an employer for firing you on account of your disability, as well as ways in which you may be able to continue to receive workers’ compensation even after you have been let go.
