If you have a workers compensation case but your uninsured employer has filed for bankruptcy what should you do?
Answer In California and other states, a portion of worker's comp premiums paid by employers go into the Uninsured Employer's Fund. This fund pays for treatment …and compensation of injury victims when the employer is illegally uninsured. Check with your state's labor department or worker's comp board to see if such a fund exists in your state.
Worker's compensation is a type of insurance provided by employers in case an individual gets injured on the job. Worker's compensation pays an employee for medical care and l…ost wages until an employee can recover and get back to work. The system under which the injuries to workers are paid for by insurance without the need fo suit or legal action. It also pays for a workers loss income as a result of a work related injury.
Your previous and current employers pay into a fund, similar to Social Security. Another answer:The state's employment security division collects a payroll tax from emplo…yers, based on the number of employees and the turnover rate for that employer, and that funds the unemployment benefits. The employees are not taxed or charged.

If your company has been paying its unemployment taxes to the state all along, its being bankrupt won't hurt your unemployment benefits because those are paid to you from the …state's pool of taxes collected from all the employers. Of course, you still have to qualify as any other claimant, as far as the state is concerned.

I am hoping someone has an answer to this
Employers can fire an at-will employee for any reason, but an employee has remedies in court for wrongful termination (i.e., if the employee was fired for not participating in… illegal activities that the employer was involved in, if the employee was discriminated against, or when the employee "blows the whistle" on the employer).
