If your injury happened "on the job" and was the result of you performing ordinary activities on the job, you are covered by Workman's Compensation Insurance that your employer is required to provide. Contact the Dept. of Labor for the state where you live, and the division for Workman's Comp.. If still no action hire an attorney. You will fare better if you hire an attorney that specializes in Workman's Comp. cases. The attorney will collect his fee from a percentage of the overall settelment he gets for you.
to the best of my knowledge
An employer has to pay for all hours worked. Other than that, it needs to follow its own policies about paid time off. Workers comp laws do not require the EMPLOYER to pay - they require INSURANCE to pay lost time benefits.

The employer is not required by law to pay out sick pay while an employee is collecting workman's comp. It depends on the employer though. In some cases an employer may pay earned sick pay to an employee collecting workman's comp. pay as a good will gesture, especailly to an employee who has had a very serious injury and has been a long term employee who has had few or no injuries.

The employer can ask, however, it's your decision to accommodate or not. An employer cannot force you to work without pay. The question is, can you trust the employer, and can you survive without pay.

If the employer has been fired, presumably he or she does not have to pay you at all, as he or she is no longer your employer. The employer who replaces the fired one is responsible for paying you.
Of course! Pull out a five dollar bill and see whose picture is on it! Lincoln eliminated slavery. If the employer doesn't pay--call the state employment people.
In general an employee has no right under employment law to be paid while on sick leave. Consequently, it is at the discretion of the employer to decide his/her own policy on sick pay and sick leave, subject to the employee's contract or terms of employment.

It will more than likely affect your claim. It will likely be concluded that you at least contributed to your own injury, and therefore the employer will not be as obligated to pay for your injury as it would if you were not under the influence of controlled substances.
Vacation pay is whatever the employer policy says it is, but employer must follow its published policy.
If he has received an order to garnish your pay, which always happens before you receive it, he must do so by law.
Work injuries are evaluated under the Worker's Compensation system. If the injuries are proven, the employer pays a percentage of disability. Therefore, it is not the usual wage, but is a percentage.
