Workers’ Compensation and Retaliation

Under the law, every employee who qualifies for workers’ compensation has the right to seek financial assistance after a workplace accident. Unfortunately, unscrupulous employers do not always acknowledge this right. Injured workers have experienced a number of roadblocks to receiving the compensation they need, ranging from unfairly denied claims to harassment or job termination.

When an employer tries to punish a worker for exercising his or her legal rights, it is called retaliation – and it is against the law. If you or a member of your family has been a victim of employer retaliation after filing a workers’ compensation claim, help is available. Call your Iowa lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 to learn more about your legal options.

Recognizing Employer Retaliation

Workers have faced employer retaliation for taking a variety of legally protected actions, including:

  • Filing or attempting to file workers’ compensation claims
  • Reporting safety hazards to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
  • Blowing the whistle on workers’ compensation fraud on the part of employers

Employer retaliation can take many forms. You may be a victim of this illegal practice if you have experienced any of the following at work:

  • Unjustified job termination
  • Verbal abuse or threats from your employer
  • Decreased wages or an unfair demotion
  • Unjustified disciplinary actions or negative performance reviews
  • Sudden and severe increases or decreases in your workload

If you are coping with employer retaliation, you may have grounds for legal action. Filing a legal claim against your employer can help you protect your job and reputation, as well as receive compensation for your related losses. Our Iowa workers’ compensation retaliation attorneys can provide the information and experienced legal assistance you need.
