Congratulations! You have successfully navigated the small claims court process and have been able to secure a Judgment against that tenant who stopped paying the rent, the homeowner who called you to perform work in the dark of night after a terrible storm, or the patient who assured you that she would bring payment to her next visit.

So, you have an employee who is consistently late to work, fails to follow company safety procedures, and generally demonstrates behavior that is inconsistent with authority. You want to fire him. But not so fast. The same troublesome employee also filed a worker’s compensation claim for a minor injury within the last year. Your insurance carrier paid the claim and there were no disputes about it. So why does it matter?
