In brief: Depends...

Workers 'rights' depend upon the policies of their employers i would say.

And it also depends on your state. Many states have moved this form of healthcare out of,the doctor’s hands and into those of the worker’s,compensation insurance companies and their employees or those of national standards groups

In brief: See details

The answer depends of the laws of your home state.
You need to check with the appropriate agency there.

In brief: Varies

Your "rights" are determined by a multitude of different factors.
The state of residence, the place of injury (job related/not) , the size of business (small businesses are often exempt), and others. You should check with the state employment services offices who often have online sources that describe the law and a process of appeals if you are terminated.
