Since losing my job as an RN in 2008 I've applied for numerous jobs with no results. I had a needle stick injury that resulted in an infection that I was treated for 2 years. While the infection will be with me forever I have no current problems. I think the fact that workers comp has and is still handling my med. care may be the reason I've been unable to find employment. Can an employer ask about W/C claims on applications or during interviews?
