Fired After Injury
Good employers don’t fire an employee after they are injured. But bad managers sometimes do. Every day we learn of managers, supervisors, and human resources professionals who take adverse action against injured employees after they file a workers’ compensation claim or request more time before returning to work. Adverse actions include:
- Verbal or written discipline for absences or other alleged policy “violations”
- Salary reductions
- Change in shift assignments
- Negative evaluations
- Suspension without pay
