I'm dealing with a repetitive stress injury. Worker's Comp has, so far, paid for all my medical treatments. I was on light duty and received therapy. I had a major reduction in pain. I was put back on full duty with a few restrictions and my symptoms reappeared.
Once again, I'm being put back on light duty.
As I described in a previous post, the light duty is driving me bonkers.
If I protest the light duty assignment, they might fire me.
On the other hand, I could quit and go on with my life.
Is there any difference to my Worker's Comp status if I quit or get fired?
I'm close to retirement age. This job has no retirement and my pension will come from previous employment, so I can afford to leave this job at any time.
The question is: is there any difference to me in getting fired vs. quitting?
