Will I lose my job if I file a workers’ compensation claim?

If you have been injured at work you may be nervous to file a worker’s compensation claim because you fear losing your job. However, it is illegal for your employer to fire or otherwise discriminate against you for reporting an injury under New Jersey’s Workers’ Compensation Statute.

You can file a complaint with the Division of Workers’ Compensation if you feel you were unlawfully terminated from your job in retribution for an injury claim.
