Charleston Workers’ Compensation Retaliation Lawyers
Has Your Employer Retaliated After You Filed for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
Workers' compensation retaliation occurs when a negative action is taken against an employee who is eligible to file a workers' compensation claim or who declares their intention to file a claim. Both North Carolina and West Virginia prohibit an employer from retaliating against an employee who is seeking or receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
If you have been injured in the workplace, you have reported your injury to your employer, and you have filed, or intend to file, for workers’ compensation benefits, you may be protected from retaliation and wrongful discharge. Because the workers’ compensation anti-retaliation statutes have particular requirements you must satisfy, it is important that you contact a skilled employment attorney to discuss your legal rights.
