Workers’ Compensation Retaliation
Fight For Your Right To Workers’ Compensation
Are you or a family member being punished for getting workers’ compensation?
Workers in Missouri are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits when they get hurt or sick on the job. Unfortunately, your employer may try to stop you from applying for your rightful benefits, or take revenge on you after the fact, but you do not have to accept this mistreatment. Ralston Kinney, LLC, helps workers throughout Kansas City, Missouri, after they have been the victims of workers’ compensation retaliation.
What Is Workers’ Compensation Retaliation?
Though the law prohibits it, some employers try to save costs by creating an atmosphere where applying for workers’ compensation is strongly discouraged. A common tactic is to punish injured employees who apply. The employer might discriminate against the worker by cutting his or her hours, giving them lesser assignments, or denying them a promotion or raise he or she has earned. In some cases, the employer will fire the worker to send a message not to seek workers’ compensation.
If this has happened to you, remember that you have rights. As your attorneys, we will help you stand up for those rights. We will take on your employer and seek rightful damages, possibly including financial compensation, to make up for what was done to you. We will do everything possible to help you reach a satisfying result.
