What Can I Do if I Believe My Employer Will Punish Me for Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

What can I do if I believe my employer will punish me for filing a workers’ compensation claim?

It is illegal for employers to terminate or penalize you for filing a claim. But unfortunately, it happens.

To protect yourself it’s important to document everything as fully as possible. You should save all paperwork related to the injury. Record or write down interactions with the employer and insurance company and bring a friend to any discussions with your employer. This can provide valuable evidence later if your claim is denied or you are fired or penalized for filing it.

You may be able to sue an employer that fires you for making a claim even if it’s said that firing was for another reason.

As a client , I must say their firm is the most caring and knowledgeable of any I know. They are prompt with answering questions. They treat you how you want to be treated. They effectively helped me in the most critical stages of my appeals in 2 different areas. I had 2 different attorneys that were experts in the areas of law to best help serve me. Their assistants gave me fast and efficient service as well. The attorneys were available to speak to whenever necessary. They are just great people! Quality is the best word to describe the staff!! I would recommend to all who need help.
