Georgia can't get a new job after wc
#3
I have read about insurance exchanges who provide past work comp injury info. This may be what the temp job 
told you, and she misunderstood he is not insurable. In California it is illegal to discriminate against a person for filing a work comp claim previously. It sounds like this woman stated they did not hire him because of his previous work comp claim. I am curious if this is legal in your state?

I recommend contacting a civil labor law attorney about this to see if what she told your husband was illegal. I also recommend discussing what is happening with him. Every state has different laws and there may be no recourse for this. I hope not. People should not be blacklisted for life after being injured on the job. (JMO)

In California you cannot be asked if you had filed a previous WC claim during an interview, but I have read other states they can ask.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
