State Workers' Compensation Laws

Statutes and regulations in many states prohibit retaliation against employees who invoke their rights under state workers’ compensation laws.  Often, these statutes and regulations include provisions giving employees with on-the-job injuries rights to leaves of absence while recovering from these injuries.  Taft Labor and Employment Department attorneys frequently provide advice regarding these employee rights under state workers’ compensation laws and help clients deal with the overlap between these state laws and federal leave of absence laws.
