I was put on workmans comp. for 6 weeks
for I had tore the ligaments in my right foot and the tendons. I was put on setetary duty, at first I had asked my employer was there any setetary work and he said no. So 4 weeks go by and I get a call from my workmans comp. rep. She said that i was suppose to be getting a call from our secretary that day, that they had some work for me to do. That was on a Thursday,I didn't speak to them until that following Monday. Then during the conversation with the owner of my company, I come to find out that I was let go. This is the only time I have ever been injured on a job.I would like to know is it illegal for a employer to just fire someone on workmans comp. If it is should i take legal action, or do I even have a case. thank you.
