Discrimination Against Injured Workers
If you suffered an injury in an accident or because of your working environment on the job, you have a legal right to file a workers’ compensation claim. While filing a claim is the only way to obtain insurance benefits to cover your medical costs and wages while you are out of work, it also may mean your employer will face higher insurance costs. Many employers do not like the increase in premiums, or the fact that you are missing work, and put illegal pressure on employees not to file workers’ compensation claims.
Injured On The Job And Suffering Retaliation?
If your employer is discriminating or retaliating against you because you filed a claim, or because you asked about filing a claim, it is a violation of your workplace rights and you are entitled to seek additional financial damages.
