What is the name of your state? ms
i wanted to know if it's kosher to deny employment because of a previous workmans comp claim.

Soley on the basis that you once had a worker's comp claim, most likely not, although that is a matter of your State's Worker's Comp regulations. You can contact your State's Department of Labor or Worker's Comp Division to obtain a definitive answer.

If your prior work injury has left you with some impairment that would prevent you from performing a particular job, that's another matter.
