What Do I Do if I’m Afraid of Retaliation From My Employer?
Your employer is not legally allowed to retaliate in any way if you file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ comp insurance is there to protect both you and your employer in the case that you are injured on the job. They cannot fire or demote you based on your filing. However, please keep in mind that if you are no longer able to perform your current position, some adjustments may be necessary. The team at Adams Law Group in Missouri can help you ensure that your workers’ comp rights are protected from retaliation.
