The Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act applies to out of state workers regardless of where their employer is located in the south if their injuries occur in Pennsylvania. An out of state employer that threatens to fire their workers because they file Workers’ Compensation claims that arise out of injuries in Pennsylvania are not immune to lawsuits by the employee for wrongful discharge. The injured worker can collect both compensation for his work injury and sue his employer as a result of the wrongful termination.
