#188 Georgia Workers' Compensation Lawyer -What is the difference between Employment Law & Workers' Comp Law?
/

How does Employment Law differ from Workers’ Compensation Law? Hello, my name is Ty Wilson. I’m a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney practicing law in the state of Georgia. And we get a lot of calls about people who have been injured at work, but also people who are being discriminated or terminated at work. And it may or may not involve an injury. 

And so when it does not involve an injury, and someone has been terminated and they believe wrongfully terminated or they're wrongfully being discriminated against, that is something that would fall under employment law. Employment law is a separate area of the law that handles these employment type issues. Now in Georgia, we are an At-will work state. And so it's very important that you speak with someone who knows what they're doing with employment law. 

As a worker's compensation attorney, I myself do not handle employment law issues. However, we have located the names of several employment law attorneys, and we're happy to refer those on to you. If you have an employment law issue to help you get who you need to get to. And find out if you have a valid claim or not, and find out if it's worth pursuing based on your conversation with the attorney. Anyway, we hope that information has been helpful. If you have any questions, shoot us those questions at the email address below, and we look forward to seeing you in the next video. Thank you.
