Workers' Compensation Retaliation Claims

October 13, 2011

Your employer does not have the right to retaliate against you if you have pursued Workers’ Compensation based on an injury arising out of your employment. This means your employer is barred from discharging, demoting, reassigning, or otherwise taking punitive action against you solely because you filed or pursued a claim for Workers’ Comp.

If you believe you may be the victim of Workers’ Comp retaliation, you may be entitled to damages not limited to reinstatement with back pay. It is important to note that such an action on your part is subject to very strict (and short) statute of limitations, including the requirement that you give written notice to your employer of a claimed violation within 90 days.

Contact our experts immediately to avoid missing important deadlines in your retaliation claim.
