New Haven Attorney for Workers' Comp Retaliation

Why Do Connecticut Employers Retaliate in Workers' Compensation Cases?

Looking for a Connecticut lawyer for workers’ compensation retaliation? Workers' compensation benefits are available to employees injured in work-related accidents. The insurance offers benefits and compensates for costs associated with recovery and lost wages due to an inability to perform their duties in the workplace.

Many employers continue to pay their workers' compensation insurance. They follow the required procedures for an injured employee and good employers are concerned that their employee receives the deserved benefits. There are some companies actively seeking to minimize their overall insurance costs by discouraging employees from filing insurance claims, making the situation very difficult for the injured worker who hopes to keep their job and does not want to endanger their ability to continue to work for their employer, and we recognize that these matters may need to be addressed carefully and with skill.

Simply discouraging an employee from seeking rightful workers' compensation benefits in the event of a workplace accident is legal, butit is illegal to retaliate against those who make the decision to move forward with a workers' comp claim. If an unethical employer fails to convince an injured worker from filing a claim then the employer may resort to other measures of retaliation such as creating a hostile work environment, demotion or termination.

If any of these occur, you should strongly consider consulting with a New Haven employment discrimination attorney who knows how to proceed on your behalf, and can carefully manage your case.

To build a case against any employer it is helpful to have as much documentation as possible to present to the opposition and in support of the employee. As a result, an employer is often inclined to settle quickly rather than face exposure of wrongdoings, and we are skilled at working with an employer to bring these issues to a resolution with the least stress and difficulty for our clients.
