The Law Protects You From Wrongful Termination
If you were injured at work, the natural course of action would be to pursue workers’ compensation for your injuries. Legally, your employer is not allowed to fire you for filing a claim, but what should you do if they terminate you anyway?
This is where a lawyer is essential. It is always wise to have a lawyer working on your claim anyway, but if you were fired, you can secure extra compensation beyond your workers’ comp benefits to make up for the wrong done to you and penalize your employer for their actions.
We at DeAngelis, Dastur & Associates, P.C., can help you seek justice if you become a victim of termination after a claim. We are Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists, which shows our dedication and experience in workers’ comp cases.
Do Not Let Your Employer Get Away With Retaliation
“Whistleblower” is a term that describes an employee who reports illicit activities that an employer is engaging in. We have laws that protect whistleblowers from losing their job for simply obeying the law. There are several types of instances that you might report a company for, including:
- Workplace harassment
- Workplace discrimination
- Wage and hour complaints
- Family and medical leave laws
- Health and safety violations
- Workers’ compensation issues
If you have filed a claim for workers’ compensation, or have reported illicit behavior in the workplace, and your employer retaliated by firing you, that is known as wrongful termination. If you experienced a wrongful termination in Pennsylvania, we are ready to protect your rights.
