If you have been discriminated against or injured in the scope of your employment, you have a legal right to compensation. Many employees think that by filing a claim of discrimination or worker’s compensation, they are putting themselves at odds with their employer; in reality the employee is legally obligated and protected and the employer cannot retaliate for such claims.
If employers, regardless of how large and/or powerful they are, do not follow the laws pertaining to employment and worker’s compensation, they can, and should, be held accountable.
You have a right to pursue a claim if your employer has made any decision regarding your employment based on:
- National Origin
- Filing a Worker’s Compensation claim
- Pregnancy or Childbirth
- Taking FMLA
- Any complaint you made about unlawful conduct in the workplace
