Undocumented Workers Can File for Workers’ Compensation

Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, an injured worker can receive disability benefits even if he is not working legally in this country at the time of the injury. While undocumented workers are free to file a workers’ compensation claim for benefits, an employer may have those benefits suspended if the employer can prove that the injured work is capable of performing some type of work. While an employer would normally have to go through certain steps to obtain a suspension of benefits, these additional steps are not necessary when it comes to undocumented workers.

If you suffered a work injury in the state of Pennsylvania, you are covered under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. Speak with an attorney at Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano to get the advice you need to get the benefits you deserve. Call 215-568-7500 today.
