>If I Get Fired From My Job, Is My Workers’ Comp Case Over Too?

>Not necessarily. If you are fired for wilful misconduct, then your case is in trouble. However, if you have some kind of work-related restrictions and you are laid off, or fired for economic reasons, then your wage loss benefits continue. It simply depends on the circumstances of your case.

Many employers will try to set you up for a “termination for cause”- ie, too many absences, etc. They will then argue that your loss of earning power is your own fault, and not due to the work injury itself. You want to be very careful about knowing the policies set forth in your company handbook (if one exists) so that you can avoid this scenario.
