Poultry workers employed at Cagle’s may be faced with added problems as Cagle’s will eliminate 300 positions at its Pine Mountain Valley, Georgia facility. It is uncertain if these workers include those who have been injured on the job. Essentially, these jobs will be primarily the “second shift”. If the Cagle’s worker’s job is eliminated while he or she is on light or modified duty restrictions, the employee may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The rate of payment will depend on the worker’s weekly wage.
If you have been injured on the job and desire a free consultation as to your workers’ compensation benefits, please contact the Ramos Law Firm at 404-355-3431.
