My employer cannot accommodate my restrictions. I was laid off or fired. What do I do?
If your employer cannot accommodate your restrictions, you may be entitled to wage loss benefits and/or the assistance of a Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant (QRC). Call us today to make sure you get the benefits you are entitled to until you can get back to work.
Even if your employer tells you that you’ve been laid off for economic reasons, or if you were fired for reasons your employer claims were other than your work injury, you may still be entitled to wage loss benefits, so long as you have physical restrictions that limit your ability to secure employment at an earning level comparable to the amount you were earning at the time of your injury. Regardless of the reasons for your employment ending, you are also entitled to medical treatment to cure or relieve the effects of the injury.
