If an employee notifies you that he or she has incurred an injury at your place of work, you should contact your company’s insurance provider and file a First Report of Injury.

Under California Labor Code Section 132(a) subsection 1, “any employer who discharges, or threatens to discharge, or in any manner discriminates against any employee because he or she has filed or made known his or her intention to file a claim for compensation with his or her employer or an application for adjudication, or because the employee has received a rating, award, or settlement, is guilty of a misdemeanor”. You must understand that you cannot discriminate against or terminate an employee because they have filed a claim for workers’ compensation.
According, to section 132(a) subsection 2, “any insurer that advises, directs, or threatens an insured under penalty of cancellation or a raise in premium or for any other reason, to discharge an employee because he or she has filed or made known his or her intention to file a claim for compensation with his or her employer or an application for adjudication, or because the employee has received a rating, award, or settlement, is guilty of a misdemeanor”.
