The short answer is NO. If you’re hurt at work, you should be filing a workers’ compensation claim so that you can get the money you are due. Sometimes, however, people don’t want to file because they think they will be fired. Firing you for claiming workers’ compensation is illegal in Virginia. Virginia has a law that explicitly says that employers can’t fire employees for filing for workers’ compensation, and if they do, the employee can take them to court. Read More.
