If you are injured at work and become unable to fulfill your normal job requirements you still have employment rights. Your rights depend on your employment agreement, but these rights should protect you from being let go from your position due to your injuries. In this case it would be wise to contact an attorney who is well versed in employment law, who can easily review the facts of the case as well as your employment agreement, and give you a definitive answer.
