My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: California
I filed a claim with ,my employer due to an OCD i had developed from my job where i would need to check things again and again to make sure the job task i had done was left 'safe'.i lived with this for months until it made my job impossible. my employer told me a WC claim would be best if i thought the condition was caused by my job, which i did..
The claim was disputed, (which is normal in a anxiety type of case i've heard), and i went on to see a QME who said he was leaning toward a report without a permanent disability rating, but with a restriction to work the job which may have partially caused the condition..which seems like a fair report.
My question is this...
Im in college getting my teaching credential...Will this effect my chances of becoming a teacher in the future?? is there a public record of a WC claim? am i doomed from my dream of becoming a teacher due to a condition that i have developed in a work place? i know its against the law to discriminate against anyone who has filed a claim, but there would be no way to know during an application process whether or not they have thrown out my resume because of this.. also, if i moved to another state, which im planning on doing soon, do they check WC records of other states??
can someone please give me some insight on public records and how much water they hold for other employers, etc....
