Can Your Employer Fire You for Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Can Your Employer Fire You for Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Many people avoid seeking Workers' Compensation benefits, even in serious situations, because they are afraid of losing their jobs. In South Carolina, it is against the law for any employer to fire an employee for reporting an on-the-job injury or for making a Workers' Compensation claim. If an employee is fired in violation of the law they can make a claim against their employer under the South Carolina retaliatory discharge statute.

If you have further questions about filing a claim for Workers' Compensation benefits contact Injury Lawyer James Snell at 1-803-932-6117.
