Can an employer terminate an employee after he has received settlement on a workers comp claim?
Answer No, but there is a Statute of Limitations as to how long you can go on WCB and when it becomes a Disibility. Go to your Labor Relations Board about this. If you …have a WCB claim then you must have hurt yourself on the job obviously. WCB has all rights to any reports from your doctor related to the accident and it's always wise every month to get your doctor to write the company a note or letter explaining why you aren't back at work. ALWAYS leave a paper trail regarding your injuries to the company you work with. If WCB is still paying you then NO company legally can let you go without trying to work with you, WCB and your doctor and try to at least place you in a job in that company that you can physically handle, but, if it doesn't look like you are able to come back to work then you need to deal with Disibility Pension. Please go onto www.google.com and go onto Workmen's Compensation Board and you'll find all sorts of information there. Good luck Marcy I was told by a WCB Judge that even if the employer did fire you because you were injured, it would be a very hard case to prove.
Yes. Kentucky work comp requirements are very specific. If you have one or more employees, you have required to provide work comp coverage for those employees.
Workers comp settlement during divorce I received half of my ex husbands workers comp settlement as part of our divorce Do I need to claim this on my taxes?
Answer The general rule would be that a settlment that is to replace income (compared to reimbursing for a loss of something, say eyesight), is taxable income. (…Presumably on the grounds that the income it is compensating for would have been taxable, where as reimbursement for a loss wouldn't be). Certainly best to see the specifics of this settlement. I don't believe the fact half of it is assigned to you is really relevant.
Your employer cannot fire you just because you have filed a workers comp claim. They must have proof of something else before they can fire you.
They won't take your settlement away but you should pay some of what you owe on your back taxes. This won't happen automatically.
An employer has a duty to inform the employee of an changes to the employment terms. If an employer is out on workers' compensation, and they are terminated, the employer …has a duty to communicate that information to the employee and pay that employee any money they have due to them.
Workers compensation is an insurance. Your employer pays a premium during each billing period (monthly, quarterly, annually, however frequently) for coverage. This works just …like any other insurance business: the insurance company will pay for covered claims. Claims may cause the insurance company to raise premiums if they feel the business has become more of a risk.
I would contact the Fair Trades Ombudsman and sue if my boss sacked me for claiming workers comp if I was injured at work. I believe it is very illegal for an employer to do t…his. Yes, you can be fired after you file a WC claim, but not BECAUSE you filed. IF your performance, absenteeism, misconduct earned you discharge, WC does not prevent it.
Workers Compensation and unemployment benefits are two entirely different systems and so your workers compensation settlement should not hold any bearing on whether you can co…llect unemployment benefits. Unemployment benefits are not an automatic, however. To qualify for unemployment insurance benefits, a worker must: * Have worked a certain number of weeks during the year * Have earned a certain amount of money in the past year * Be actively looking for work * Be unemployed through no fault of his own
They can ask, but don't drop it.
H Show the insurer or WC agency that the employee was not on the clock on the day he/she claims to have been injured. OR show that the injury happened while the employee was …engaged in prohibited misconduct or an on-the-job crime.
No. If you have been fired (discharged, laid off, let go, whatever) while collecting worker's compensation contact your local state employment office and a lawyer. If your… doctor has cleared you to return to work, you must. If you don't return, that is one of the few times you may be fired.
Absolutely not! No.

Not necessarily, It would simply be up to you since its not his name which is going to go on the record. Its ur job on line, and the person you will be complaining to has an u…pper hand over your employer. So it really is upto you. If he does force you, its your decision that actually matters.

Does an employer have to pay an employee wages and mileage to go to the doctor if it is workers comp claim?
The worker's comp law is slightly different in each state.Basically if an employee is injured in the course and scope oftheir work, they are entitled to having the cost of med…ical carepaid, and if they miss time from work, they are to be paid forwages they miss. There ARE limits on how much the payments are. Youshould look up worker's comp for YOUR state.
