Can I Be Fired If I Retain a Lawyer and Make a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Making a workers’ compensation claim is not a lawsuit against your employer and it is illegal for any New Jersey employer to retaliate or otherwise discriminate against an employee who retains an attorney and pursues a contested workers’ compensation claim.
