Employment Issues after a Personal Injury
You may have two cases!
According to federal law, employees that have been injured must be given
time to recover and provided with the necessary accommodations when they
return to work.
If you've been injured, you may be in the process of filing a
personal injury claim to recover damages; however, you may also have to file a lawsuit against
your employment for disability discrimination.

What laws protect me from getting fired for an injury?
There are a number of federal acts that protect employees who have injuries
that affect their ability to work.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the government agency
that enforces these and other employment laws.
