Can I be dismissed after an accident at work?
In the UK, it is generally illegal for an employer to dismiss an employee after an accident at work. The Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA) states that employees cannot be unfairly dismissed for a reason related to their capability or conduct, including having an accident at work.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, an employer may be able to dismiss an employee who has been involved in a serious accident that is their own fault and which has put other employees or members of the public at risk.
If you have been dismissed after an accident at work, you should speak to a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. They can help you to understand your rights and to make a claim for unfair dismissal if appropriate.

Can I be Sacked for making a Personal Injury Claim
No, you cannot be sacked for making a personal injury claim in the UK. The Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA) protects employees from being dismissed for bringing a personal injury claim against their employer.
The ERA states that employees cannot be unfairly dismissed for a reason related to their capability or conduct, including making a personal injury claim. This means that your employer cannot dismiss you simply because you have made a claim for compensation for an injury that you sustained at work.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, your employer may be able to dismiss you if you have made a false or malicious claim.
