Can I be fired from my job for reporting an on the job injury?

No. An employer may not fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim. There are specific laws in South Carolina that protect workers from being fired for filing a work injury claim. If you are injured on the job and you are fired because you filed a workers’ compensation claim, you may have a claim against your employer for retaliation.
