Layoffs in Johnston, PA

Johnstown, Pennsylvania area defense contractor DRS Laurel Technologies plans on laying off 50 more employees. The plant had 900 workers in May of 2008, and has laid off 80 full-time employees. Employees who suffered a work injury, are currently working with medical restrictions and are laid off may be entitled to a reinstatement of workers’ compensation benefits. Your receipt of unemployment compensation does not hurt your rights to receive workers’ compensation, which is tax free and can last 11.6 years or longer. A Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorney at Calhoon and Kaminsky P.C., can help determine if you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
