Frequently Asked Question – Will I be terminated if I file a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
The Workers’ Compensation Act is a no-fault system that provides relief for injured workers. In compensable cases, the workers’ compensation Carrier will provide medical care and payment of compensation while an injured employee is out of work. Unfortunately, many injured workers are afraid to file for benefits for fear of termination. S.C. Code Ann. § 41-1-80 prohibits an employer for terminating an employee in retaliation to filing a workers’ compensation case.
