There is a common misconception that once an employee is injured on the job that the employer must hold his job until he can return after recovering from his injuries.  While there are laws out there that provide protection under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Workers’ Compensation Act provides no such protection.  It is imperative that an injured employee understands the limits of his employer’s obligations under the Workers’ Compensation Act so that he can plan accordingly.  Injured workers are encouraged to seek out the advice of an attorney on these matters as soon as practicable.  Campbell & Associates has offices in Charlotte, Hickory, Gastonia and Rock Hill.  Please visit for more information.
