Employer Retaliation and Workers' Compensation
Wrongful Termination, Demotion and Discrimination
At times, a Palmdale or Lancaster workers' compensation claim may be handled unfairly by an employer or workers' compensation insurance company. Employer retaliation is one type of wrongful conduct related to work injuries and workers' compensation claims, and this may have serious consequences for an employee. Employer retaliation may include wrongful termination, demotion, interference with the workers' compensation claims process, or any action taken by an employer which essentially penalizes an employee for being injured on the job or for filing a workers' compensation claim.
Fortunately, an employee who has been the victim of employer retaliation in regard to any workers' compensation claim, work accident or work injury may work with an attorney to take legal action against his or her employer for their conduct. In addition to seeking the workers' compensation benefits you deserve, you may also be able to seek additional damages for the discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination you were subjected to. A workers' compensation attorney serving the Lancaster and Palmdale areas can work to protect your rights and interests to help you recover benefits.
