My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: New York
I was injured in 2010 at work and required 2 surgeries. My employer laid me off in 2011 as I was scheduled to return to work (they'd figured out how to do without me for so long that they didn't need me anymore). I have since moved to CA and I am no longer receiving unemployment.
I need to receive a third surgery for my injury. So my question is, if I begin working somewhere will the insurance company cover a portion of my salary when I go out for surgical leave? What happens if I don't find work? Are there any benefits or anything I can do?
