Leaving Company With An Active Case...
Question: What would happen if I were to find a new job with an open and active WC claim? Will the company I'm with now drop everything? Does the claim get handed over to the new company? My attorney is on vacation right now, and this is sort of a burning question at the moment.
Stats to help: I'm in Ohio, currently working 5-6 hours per shift and am not being compensated for the lost hours. Not sure what my attorney has planned as far as the lost wages go. The reason I'm looking to work somewhere else is, well, my job stinks. Too many reasons to list here but they basically include a terrible boss, (I'm not just saying that either, 4 others at work are thinking of quitting as well) rampant unprofessionalism, and simply the fact that I've become bored and have hit a plateau...I've mastered my position and don't really feel I can learn much more. Given that physically I can only work limited hours, I'm assuming that I'm limited to part time work. Unless there's something stipulating that I'm entitled to lost wages because of my injury no matter where I work, which is why I'm asking this question.
Thanks in advance for all responses!Smile
as longas you work within your restrictions there is nothing making you stay....your WC case how ever stays with your old employer
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

no, your claim would still exist.
workers comp is not health insurance. it's not you that has the policy; it's the employer. the employers comp policy continues to protect them as long as you have a claim.
no, the policy and all the costs from their claims stays with the original carrier.
your disability benefits are determined in part by your medical restrictions.
