Can I be fired while on workers comp?Sad
yes you can...
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

can they fire you if the injury you received at work hurts you too bad to go in. The w/c doc had me return to work to soon and the restrictions he has me on my managers arent inforcing, kinda hard to inforce excessive exposure to heat and to keep the wounds clean and dry when they have you working right by the grease fryers.
yes. Employment covered by Family and Medical Leave Act gives a worker 12 weeks of job protection while they are off work.
more on your FMLA rights here
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.

It also helps to know the State this is in;

It would help to know, how long you been out;

It would be good to know why you ask this;

It would help to know a little history, as type injury, what is being done to treat you, and what you Doctor thinks the lenght of time you might be out of work;

Burned in Ky... YES they can fire you. You must return to work if the WC doc releases you to do so. You must at least try. If you cannot stand it, like i told you before, tell superior you need to see MD...or go to ER. If you do not return to work, you will be cited with non-compliance...and any WC money and med care will CEASE!
Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!

A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
The only other thing that could stop them from getting rid of you would be if you are covered by a union and they had some rules on it
