At a certain point in an injured workers' "road to recovery" following an injury, he or she will reach a stationary point of improvement. Hopefully, by this time, the worker has achieved a complete recovery, but in some cases, workers have not completely healed and they're suffering from what is deemed to be a "permanent injury." It's at this point that the workers' medical condition is referred to as "permanent and stationary" or "P&S."

When is termination not wrongful?

Getting let go from the workplace is hurtful, and it's natural to feel like an employer did you a disservice if you are laid off or fired.

In reality, there are many reasons that an employer can let you go and only certain circumstances result in successful wrongful termination claims.
