If you file a worker's compensation claim after a work-related accident, your employer cannot simply fire you for doing so. However, your employer may fire you for a multitude of other reasons. There is a possibility you could be fired due to a prolonged absence from work, even if it resulted from an injury after a work-related accident. There are no guarantees that your job will be held while you are away. If you are a union member, you may have protected job security. Be aware that other benefits such as health or dental insurance may be concluded as well
