Workers' Compensation Retaliation

Jersey City Workers' Compensation Retaliation Attorney

By law, employers must carry workers' compensation insurance. By law, you cannot be fired for filing a valid claim. By law, your employer cannot even refuse to provide medical treatment or give you time off to deal with your injuries. Unfortunately, employers do not always care what the law says.

If your employer is making your recovery more difficult than it needs to be, their attempts at retaliation need to be stopped. Contact us for a free consultation today.

More Than a Half Century of Dedication to Injured Workers' Rights

At Krumholz Dillon, we have been handling workers' compensation claims for people in Hudson County and throughout New Jersey since 1956. As a result, we have seen employers seek retaliation in a number of different ways, including:

  • Purposefully delaying or refusing to choose a physician to treat your job related accident, or occupational injury or disease
  • Refusing to allow you time off for necessary or reasonable medical treatment related to your injuries
  • Termination for having a sustained disability
  • Failure to accommodate for your disability
  • Demoting you without cause or justification once you have returned to work
  • Firing you in retaliation for filing a workers' compensation claim

Because of the severe penalties they could face, employers rarely fire employees in these cases. Instead, many injured employees who return to work suddenly find their work environment hostile and unfamiliar. This is just as wrong. As your lawyers, we can put a stop to it.
