Can I Be Fired or Demoted If I File a Workers’ Comp Claim? 

 Filing a workers' compensation claim should not result in employee demotion or termination. Employers can face serious consequences for retaliation, as it is illegal to retaliate against an employee for making a legitimate claim. Workers who believe they have been unfairly demoted or terminated due to a workers' compensation claim should discuss their situation with an experienced attorney.

What You Should Do After a Workplace Accident 

 If you have been injured in a workplace accident in North Carolina, it is important to take the necessary steps to ensure that you are able to receive the compensation that you deserve. The first step is to provide written notice of the accident to your employer as soon as possible. You are legally required to report the accident and your injuries within thirty days of the incident. 

The notice of the accident should include the date and time of the accident as well as a description of your injuries. In North Carolina, you must file Form 18 with the North Carolina Industrial Commission to file a workers’ comp claim, and you give your employer a copy of this form as a way of offering notice.
