A former executive assistant to a school superintendent claims that she was wrongfully terminated after injuring her back at work. She worked in the district for 20 years before she was fired in 2009.
The state Supreme Court of South Carolina decided a landmark case for the state. The decision will ensure larger and more equitable Social Security disability income for workers who face career-ending injuries. Because of the decision the permanently injured worker from the case will receive hundreds of dollars more every month in benefits.
