From the abstract:
► It is well-known that medical costs and lost wages from workplace injuries and illnesses are not fully compensated. ► Another consequence of these injuries or illnesses that can result in inadequate compensation could be long-term disability or early termination of employment. ► This study observed an association between prior workers compensation claims and the incidence rate of long-term disability or early termination. ► Depending on the employers and employee status, such as hourly vs. salaried or union membership, this association could go in either direction.
