I came to this site seeking specific information. My mom fell at work and broke her knee, now her doctor has forbidden her from going to work, so I wanted to make sure she was entitled to her pay still or at least could avoid termination. I also wanted to see if she needed to fill out worker’s comp forms or other paperwork. I wasn’t sure they even had worker’s comp where she works.
Turns out Slip & Fall accidents are very hard to take to court, I wasn’t looking to sue anyone really so I headed out of the Accident Section and into the Employee Rights section. It seems it’s all up to her employer and whether or not they have worker’s comp. But I did learn a lot about my rights as an employee.
