My employment was terminated this past week after I spoke with my supervisor that the work related injury I suffered this past winter had never gotten better and now it was worse than ever. I told him that I'm not quitting my job, I just need to go back onto workers comp and get completely healthy. I received a letter in the mail 3 days later stating my employment has been terminated. After contacting my employer and telling them that they cannot legally fire me for a work related injury they sent me another letter reinstating my employment. My question is , do I have to accept the reinstatement or can I decline and run the gambit of the legal system and not return to the job where I'm sure they'll fabricate a trumped up reason to release me?
