I do not think my circumstances qualify for W.C., but I want to make sure.
I had a pre-existing hand condition before working at this job. It's very easy to work around by having variety in my projects. But my boss gave me only one option of an extremely repetitive job for the last 3 weeks. I was told it was the only work in, and was not allowed to do anything else, even though I told them it was hurting me and I could not keep doing it.
Yesterday, my hands went completely numb, and when I approached the boss to again request other work, she fired me.
I am obviously looking into disability discrimination. But my question is - since I had a pre-existing condition, and without knowing if this has permanently done more damage to my hands, do I have any reason to consider pursuing Workers' Comp?
