Your reference to the event is confusing, at a minimum. If you were injured while on the job, or in the course of your employment, albeit by your boss's dog, you are limited to workers compensation to pay for your medical treatment due to the dog bite and scheduled lost wages. You are entitled to file for workers compensation and if your employer fires you for doing so that is an illegal retaliation for which you can also file a claim for under the Worker Compensation laws. If the incident occurred off the job, you do not provide enough information about how the event took place to be able to give any thoughts or opinions on the subject. As for your reference to them trying to fire you for the past year, or what you mean by your boss saying "ok", it is impossible to know decipher that information.
