Will I Be Fired for Making a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Tennessee?

If you're injured at work in Tennessee, it is illegal for the employer to fire you if you make a claim. Now rest assured if you get put on restrictions and you’re not able to do the job after your injury, the employer can let you go. If it's also a very small company and you're out for a long time recovering, they can let you go. But it's illegal for your employer to fire you because you make a claim. If they do that you have a different kind of claim in addition to your work comp case. It's called a wrongful termination case. If you've been hurt in Tennessee, and you've made a claim, and your employer has not treated you the right way, then let us help you make that situation right.
