BWO Client Gets $65,000 for Work Comp Discrimination
Employers often retaliate against employees that make workers' compensation claims. Employers shouldn't because its against the law. Employees have a right to workers' compensation benefits for work injuries, and the law prohibits employers from firing, demoting, or harassing employees for asserting their rights. Sadly, it still happens.
BWO recovered $65,000 for a client who was fired for making a workers' compensation claim. Being injured on the job in traumatic enough. Being fired for asserting your right to benefits is insult to injury and can cause severe financial hardship. We were happy to recover for our deserving client and to hold an employer accountable for violating the law.
