As noted by my brethren, it is best not to make any admissions in a public form such as this and any such admissions should be made in the presence of counsel which would render them privileged.
With that stated, in order to receive Workers Compensation Benefits, one must have been earning wages that have been reported to the IRS and your current Employment arrangement does not comport with that prerequisite. There are, however, ways to rectify this situation and for that reason it is my recommendation that you promptly contact an Attorney who is a Certified Specialist in Pennsylvania workers Compensation Law to schedule an Initial Consultation to discuss your rights and remedies.
With respect to your Employer's threat to fire you, whether, or not, you would have any cause of action would depend upon whether the firing was in retaliation for having a Workers Compensation Claim. Again, I would contact an Attorney to discuss these issues, in person, rather than online.See question

I need to know if lm eligible for unemployment or workmens comp due to being in a accident that was not work related.
I believe you have already asked this very same question a couple hours ago.
Please refer to my previous response where and I advise that if this was a non-work-related slip and fall, you would not be eligible for Workers Compensation Benefits. You may be eligible for On employment Compensation if you are able to return to work With restrictions and your employer is on able to accommodate them.
If your employer is sufficiently large, you may be eligible for FMLA leave which is unpaid leave but we guarantee your position for 12 weeks.
Again, assuming this is a non-work-related slip and fall, I would suggest you contact a personal injury attorney to see if you have a viable third-party cause of action.See question
I fell into a five foot hole that was poorly covered. I sustained severe injuries to back and both legs. However, I'm really afraid that I may lose my job and my home. How can I protect myself from losing both without any type of weekly income?
I am sorry to hear about the injury to your back and both legs and the situation which it has placed in.
If the injury did not occur, while in the course and scope of your employment, you would not be eligible for Workers Compensation Benefits. If your company is sufficiently large, you may be able to qualify for FMLA leave which would protect your job for 12 weeks, however, it is unpaid leave.
If the injury has resulted in your being unable to perform your pre-injury job, but enable you to work with restrictions which your Employer is not able to accommodate, you may be eligible for Unemployment Compensation Benefits.
Lastly, depending upon the circumstances of your slip and fall you may have a viable 3rd party cause of action against the owner of the property where your injury occurred.
It would be my recommendation that you promptly contact a Personal Injury attorney to discuss your rights and remedies, assuming the injury did not occur within the course and scope of your employment. If the injury was work-related, you should promptly contact a Attorney who is a Certified Specialist in Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Law.See question

I am sorry to hear about the injury that you sustained at work while lifting numerous heavy batteries, however, your Employer's "promise" to pay for your lost wages and medical bills is akin to "insurance fraud" and more often than not will be a broken promise. Essentially what your Employer has done is discourage you from filing a Workers Compensation Claim so that it does not become a reported claim on his Workers Compensation Insurance and when, and if, your medical bills begin to mount he will more than likely refuse to pay for same. You will then have no recourse against your Employer.
It is my recommendation that you immediately contact an Attorney who is a Certified Specialist in Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Law to secure a Free consultation in order to discuss your rights and remedies. Please note that most Attorneys will except your Case on a Contingent Fee Basis.See question
I am receiving SSDI for years now but was just wondering would having assets like saving accts or owning a home with my husband interfere with my SSA SSDI benefits. Is receiving SSDI is their a limit on having assets or just a limit on SSI I don't...
There is no limitation on assets if you are receiving Social Security Disability Benefits. Social Security Disability is essentially an insurance program with your FICA deductions acting as a premium. If you are receiving SSI Benefits, this is more of a federal welfare program and does have limitations upon what assets you may possess in order to be eligible.See question
