Wrongful Termination Due to Workers' Comp

Were you fired after being injured on the job?

After a worker has suffered substantial physical injuries while performing work duties, it is common practice for the worker to file a claim for workers' compensation. At times, an employer may retaliate against the injured worker by demoting, discriminating against or firing the worker altogether. It is illegal for an employer to perform any acts of "retaliation" against an employee who chooses to file a workers' comp claim, and you must seek legal protection if this has happened to you.

California law makes it illegal for employers to punish their workers for being injured on the job, filing a claim or testifying in another person's workers' comp claim. While some forms of retaliation are obvious, such as firing or wage decrease, other forms of discrimination are more subtle. Some employers give unjust performance reviews or refuse to promote an employee simply because they have sought compensation through workers' compensation insurance. An Oakland workers' comp lawyer can help you protect your rights under these circumstances, so do not hesitate to call The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand.

An educated attorney can help you gather evidence to support your wrongful termination claim so that you can seek the compensation you deserve. Employers who wrongfully terminate employees will face statutory penalties or may be forced to pay damages to cover the employee's lost wages and other additional expenses. In some cases, the lawyers at the firm have been able to seek punitive damages, in other words a monetary reward for wrongful actions, from an employer on the behalf of their clients. To learn more about the types of compensation you may be entitled to as an injured worker, call the law firm with over two decades of experience helping the people of Oakland and the surrounding areas.
