If my employer fires me or I quit my job does my workers’ compensation claim end too?
Your entitlement to workers’ compensation benefits does not end if you no longer work for the same employer. Whether you leave voluntarily or involuntarily, you are still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for the injury. You should know that voluntarily leaving your employment could impact benefits such as lost wages. Also, you may be entitled to other benefits if you lose your job involuntarily such as unemployment benefits and/or the right to file a lawsuit against the employer for wrongful termination.
