    This isn't relevant at all to the OP's question nor any other scenario posted here. This is not the place to try and stir up arguments that don't exist.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      So you sometimes, although rarely, terminate an employee for filing a WC claim? Wow; at least you're honest, I guess.
      Not for FILING a claim--rather the insubordinate act that led to the claim. So if you write someone up for a behavior and the behavior continues, shouldn't you be able to terminate their employment? They don't get additional protection because they filed a claim. If you did that, you would have everyone filing claims to preserve their jobs.

      You have no idea what I do--or the integrity with which I do it. Until & when you do, you should be very careful about passing judgment.

      I have terminated twice after the receipt of a w/c claim in 6 years--the other time ended in felony insurance fraud and jail time.

        HR/DisMgr: I'm not passing judgment, I'm just reading what you posted. You said:
        "We rarely terminate when someone files a comp claim."
        which leads me to believe that the employee's filing of a WC claim contributed to your decision to terminate. However, I'm not wanting to argue about it, maybe that's not what you meant. I hope you don't take my comments the wrong way.

          rear-ended, your question really didn't have anything to do with OP's question. (to do with this thread) Elle said it well - this isn't the place to stir up "arguments."

          How about no more replies regarding question above. Thanks.
