Workplace Injury Retaliation Attorneys in Houston
Did Your Employer Retaliate Against You After You Got Injured At Work?
Employers in Texas are not required to carry workers' compensation insurance. Going without workers' comp coverage — or being a "non-subscriber" — can leave an employer open to a personal injury lawsuit if an employee is injured on the job.
Sometimes, in an attempt to avoid covering the cost of a worker's injury, the employer will fire or otherwise retaliate against the worker. Make no mistake: workplace retaliation is illegal, and employers who retaliate against employees should be held accountable.
If your employer has terminated you for suffering a work injury, contact our Houston workplace injury retaliation lawyers at Kennard Law, P.C. We can help make things right.
What Workplace Injury Retaliation Looks Like
Getting injured on the job is bad enough without your employer retaliating against you. In many cases, employees never would have guessed that their employer would fire them over a work injury, but retaliation in these cases is all too common.
Typically, when retaliation has occurred, the employer will try to deny it or cover it up, claiming that the employee was terminated for a justifiable reason. In some cases, no reason for the termination is provided at all, or the employer will level a false allegation against the employee to make the firing seem warranted.
Meanwhile, in addition to the injury itself, the victimized employee is left with the struggle of unemployment, along with the emotional damage caused by the whole situation.
