You Were Injured — And Your Employer Is Retaliating Against You
When you suffered an injury in a workplace accident, you worried about how you would pay for your medical treatment in addition to your regular bills. When you filed a workers’ compensation claim, fortunately, you received benefits based on your eligibility. But when you returned to work, you found that your employer was behaving oddly. Your supervisor gave you worse hours, moved you to a less desirable office or assigned you less desirable tasks. You fear that they may soon demote or fire you for no apparent reason. You can’t help wondering: Is it because you filed a workers’ compensation claim?
