LC §3600(a)(10)

LC §3600(a)(10):  A claim made after termination or layoff is not compensable unless the injured worker establishes that:

  • The employer had prior notice of injury; OR
  • Medical records show prior treatment for the condition being alleged; OR
  • The injury occurred between the notice of termination and the actual date of termination.

Remember: The defense only applies to terminations or layoffs – not voluntary resignations
