Will I Lose My Job After Filing A Claim?
People who have suffered an injury at work often hesitate to file a workers’ compensation claim out of fear that they will lose their jobs. It is illegal for an employer to fire, demote or discriminate against an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim. If you are concerned about employer retaliation, you should enlist an experienced workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible. At Morgan & Justice in Columbus, we will protect your rights as an employee and stand up for you against your employer.
What Can I Do If I Am Fired?
Even though it is illegal, some employers will wrongfully terminate employees for filing workers’ compensation claims. If this has happened to you, you may be able to file a separate employment law claim to get compensation for the loss of your job. You may also be able to take action if you have been demoted, discriminated against or otherwise retaliated against simply because you were injured in the workplace.
Our lawyers will handle your workers’ compensation claim, and we will bring in other legal professionals to represent you in your employment law claim. When you choose us to handle your case, you can be confident that every opportunity for compensation will be pursued. We will work hard to see that you get the money you need.
