    Workers Compensation

    Though I would hope it isn't the case, you may a victim of retaliation for filing a workers compensation claim. Some states prohibit retaliation for filing a wokers compensation claim. That might be the case in Virginia. I couldn't find mention of it. You may want to check with the state. Their website is at:

    Also, you can be terminated while on leave for workers compensation if that is the same treatment for other employees who are on leave for the same amount of time, etc.
