Are You Facing Work Injury Retaliation?
Our Portland Employment Law Attorneys Can Help You Fight Back
It is a possibility in many work environments to sustain an on-the-job injury. When this happens, you are legally entitled to file a claim for workers' compensation. Some employers, don’t want their insurance rates to go up so when you get injured or file a worker’s compensation claim, they retaliation by firing you right away or wait until you are done recovering and then fire you. No matter how they do it, it is illegal for an employer in any way to harass, or retaliate against an employee for an on-the-job injury.
- Under Oregon state law, employees are protected against:
- Termination after an injury and before getting the chance to file for workers' compensation
- Termination after you file a claim for worker’s compensation
- Termination before or after returning to your job with or without light-duty due to your injury
Retaliation against an employee who has experienced an injury or has filed for workers' compensation violates state law. If you have experienced this type of treatment from your employer, you are entitled to recover damages for lost wages, pain and suffering, and even get your job back (if you want to return to work). Your employer will even have to pay your attorney fees.
