Termination or Discrimination after a work Injury or Workers' Compensation Claim
Termination or discrimination after a work injury or workers' compensation claim
Section 451 of the Texas Labor Code makes it impermissible to retaliate against an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim. Likewise, under New Mexico law an employer may not retaliate against an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim. If an employee believes that he or she may have been terminated because they filed a workers’ compensation claim that employee should seek legal advice.
