If I Am On Pennsylvania Workmans Comp, Can My Employer Terminate Me?

Yes. The fact that you were injured at work in Pennsylvania does not protect your job. However, your Employer may not fire you simply because you were injured on the job or because you reported a work injury. But they can terminate you for other reasons- such as the fact that they cannot accommodate your restrictions, poor performance, economic downturn, etc.

Note, however, that you cannot be terminated for unlawful reasons such as your race, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, or if the termination violates a contract or public policy.

I often get calls from clients and potential clients who seem surprised when they learn of their termination but sadly, it is fairly common after a work injury in Pennsylvania.

A termination of employment does not end the work comp case. In some situations, it enhances the value of the case because now the insurance company has to look elsewhere to establish an earning power.
