My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Georgia
An employee fell at work. She said she was fine and felt that she had NO injuries. I sent her home and advised her to see a physician. She worked her 2nd job the same day the alleged injury occured, and saw a physician the following day who cleared her for full duty. (She later told me she told the doctor she fell off her porch.) She returned to work the day after seeing the physician and continued to work as an employee, as well as at a 2nd job. This employee was terminated 2 weeks later for failing to comply with company policy, failure to perform required tasks, and insubordination. Since being terminated 1 week ago, this former employee has contacted me claiming she is having knee pain due to her fall and has asked what doctor I use for workers comp claims.
I guess my question is, since she was cleared by a physician, and made a false claim of falling off of her porch, and continued to work, does she even have a case? (Looking back, I see that I should have immediately sent her for a drug test)
