If you are considering filing a workers compensation claim, it may have crossed your mind that this may not sit well with your employer, for whatever reason. Some employers and department heads value their safety records. Some fear their insurance rates going up. Others don’t want to fool with the paperwork. And some may not want you to be off work because you perform an essential task and the process of finding a replacement may be arduous. Legally, employers in all 50 states, including California, are forbidden from firing an employee because the employee filed a workers compensation claim. That doesn’t mean they don’t find ways to skirt the issue.
