Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “Can my employer fire me because I filed a workers’ compensation claim?”
The American workforce has been known for taking pride in their work. We work hard to accomplish our goals, and we take pride in our work ethic. In return, workers deserve protection from injury whenever possible, and compensation for their losses when they are injured on the job. When an accident occurs on the job and a worker incurs a personal injury as a result, employers in North Carolina are almost always required to compensate workers for medical bills and other expenses through a system of workers’ compensation.
