Workers' Compensation Discrimination & Injured Worker Reinstatement and Reemployment

Injured workers in most cases are entitled to be reinstated to their former positions if physically able to return to their previous duties, or are entitled to be re-employed into any other position within the company the employee can perform, so long as such a position is or becomes vacant.

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate or retaliate against an employee for making use of the workers' compensation system.
