Boynton Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt

Boynton Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer Boynton Beach Work Injury Compensation Lawyer

When retaliation in the workplace happens, employees often turn to a Boynton Beach, Florida work injury compensation lawyer at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt for advice on how to protect themselves from further mistreatment. Retaliation commonly happens in situations where an employee got sick or injured on the job, and utilized workers comp benefits to get their medical bills and other losses covered as they healed. Employers may have lost money due to an employee sustaining an injury or illness, and as a response inflicted negative actions.

If you or someone you love has become a victim of workers compensation retaliation, it is crucial that you obtain legal counsel immediately.

How an Employer May Retaliate

If your employer is aware that you filed for or were approved to receive workers compensation benefits and then took adverse action against you, it is recommended that you meet with a Boynton Beach work injury compensation lawyer at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt as soon as possible. An adverse action is any behavior taken on behalf of an employer that negatively impacts the terms and conditions of employment. Examples of adverse action can be things like:

  • Termination or suspension
  • Demotion and/or pay decrease
  • Unfair disciplinary action
  • Reduction of hours
  • Preventing employee from promotions
  • Creating a hostile workplace environment
  • Treating employee less favorably than others (in regards to vacation time, preferred shifts, leaves of absence, etc.)
  • Transferring to another department
  • Taking away current projects or assignments

An employee must understand that if an employer were to be confronted, he or she may lie and say that the reasons for such actions being taken are non-retaliatory. A work injury compensation lawyer in Boynton Beach at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can investigate the situation further and attempt to uncover these false statements made by your employer.

Your Legal Options

It can be quite nerve-wracking for an employee to come into work only to find out that he or she has been reassigned, transferred, fired, demoted or is facing some other punishment due to using workers compensation benefits. If you suspect that your employer has treated you unfairly, you have options. If there is a lawsuit or investigation in progress involving your employer and a violation of workers rights, you can add a retaliation claim to this lawsuit. If there is no current lawsuit, you can file an independent complaint against your employer for retaliation.

Potential Outcomes

With help from a Boynton Beach work injury compensation lawyer at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, you may be entitled to compensation for wages lost or other damages due to the retaliatory behavior. If the employer fired you, you may be able to get your job back (depending on whether you feel comfortable and if the offending parties have been fired). Additionally, any unfair disciplinary action that was written down on paper, will be deleted from your file so it no longer follows you in your career future at that company.

Please do not fall victim to an employer’s retaliatory behavior. A Boynton Beach work injury compensation lawyer at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can safeguard your rights and see that the company is held accountable for such mistreatment. Call us today so we can help put an end to this.
