AFTER I HAD AN INJURY IN MY WORKPLACE (UNDER 50 EMPLOYEES) AND HAD TO HAVE SURGERY ON MY FINGER I DECEIDED TO TAKE OUT A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE COMPANY BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THE SAW I WAS WORKING ON WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY, I WAS THEN TERMINATED BY THE COMPANY. I HAVE ONLY WORKED THERE FOR FOUR MONTHS. DO THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THAT?

To learn more about your rights as an employee, you may wish to visit the Employment Law Center and read Losing a Job as a good resource regarding this subject matter. I also suggest you consult with a local Employment Lawyer to advise you further on this matter.
FindLaw's Legal Heads-Up! newsletter can provide you with the legal resources you need to make informed decisions when law touches aspects of your everyday life.

If you are located in New York State I would recommend contacting OSHA ( http://www.osha.gov/ ) about your workplace safety concerns.
