I was fired for getting treatment.
Contact the Department of Labor. Learn about the Family and medical leave act.
Check newspapers for advertising for your job. Have a friend (who would be
a good witness) inquire for a job similar to yours.
I don't know if there is an anti-retaliation provision of the workers comp.
statutes. Check into it. In Mass, if you are injured you are considered
a qualified disabled person for the state disability act and have
priority in being rehired.
In my lawsuit (http://www.sorehands.com/mattel) I combined the MGL c.151B
(the Mass. version of the ADA), FMLA< and workers comp. to win.
