Best Answer

The employer is required to provide the injured person with a "injury report/accident report" one copy for their personnel files, and one for the injured. The employer is also to provide the insured with compensation for lost wages due to the injury as well as payment for any medical bills or phamacy charges if incurred by the injured, or provide a workers' compensation insurance for the injured person. Well then, to follow that, what can an injured employee do if an emoloyer does not do these things and instead, lays that person off?
