Document All Instances Of Harassment
Whether due to the macho idea that "tough guys don't get hurt" or other reasons, you may face harassment from co-workers or your employer upon returning to work. If this happens, it is critical to keep a log, noting the dates you are harassed and how you are being harassed. Once you have been injured, your employer may view you as damaged goods and welcome the opportunity to force you into resigning, leading to termination of your workers' compensation benefits and getting them off of the hook.
Harassment Is Unacceptable
There is no excuse for harassment in the workplace. After returning to work, you deserve to be treated with respect just like everyone else. To discuss your situation with a knowledgeable workers' compensation lawyer, contact us today for a free consultation. We work on a contingency or percentage fee basis, meaning you will not owe us a fee unless we recover benefits for you.
