Can my employer fire me after a work injury?

Under Iowa law your employer is not supposed to fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim.  However, you can be terminated for other reasons such as absences, work problems, etc.  Also, subject to some exceptions (for example if you are a union member) generally your employer does not have to find you work if you are unable to return to your old job because of restrictions.
