  • I was fired after being rear-ended in a company car. Is this legal?

    Since you were injured while on-the-job for your employer, you are entitled to claim benefits under Workers' Compensation and your W/C attorney could ask for a court hearing to argue the nature and extent of your ability to continue working. If you cannot due the kind of work required by the wheel and tire shop, you are entitled to be re-trained to learn to do some other kind of work commensurate with your ability to do it. Your employer may terminate you on any grounds, just like you can quit on any grounds. However, if you are unable to work because of your injury, you should qualify for compensation and re-training benefits.

    If the other driver's insurance has paid money to the driver or on his/her behalf to the body shop and others, for damages you caused, it will definitely try to recover that money from you. The deductible amount you pay will be credited to the total amount you owe. You may be asked to pay in installments or you wages may be garnished.

    Fernando’s Answer

    If your employer placed a condition on your continued employment on your generating new incoming projects and you failed to do so, you essentially were "fired" even though you voluntarily resigned. Accordingly, you could apply for unemployment benefits after the initial wait period imposed by the EDD.
