Can I lose my job for mounting a compensation claim against my employer?

The short answer to this is no. All employers are required by law to pay compulsory workers compensation insurance, so any compensation paid to you will come from your employer’s insurance company.

There are a number of laws in place to protect you from being laid off simply for making a claim. However, employers are well within their rights to end your employment if your illness or injuries prevent you from performing your prescribed duties, if this is the case our team will assist you with seeking common law damages to account for lost future earnings.
