We Protect Your Right to File a Claim
After returning to work once you have filed a workers’ compensation claim, your employer can retaliate against you in a number of ways:
- Failure to promote
- Adverse wage action
- Negative reassignment or transfer
- Wrongful termination or unjust firing
- Unmerited negative performance review
- Intimidation or threats of adverse action
- Interference with your right to workers’ compensation benefits
You should know that your employer is still able to take reasonable actions if you are unable to work in the capacity you once did or if you fail to show up to work. For this reason, you need to make sure you have healed sufficiently to resume your normal job duties.
