When you think of retaliation on the job, you may think about being fired for filing a workers' comp claim. Instead of firing you, employers may try to get away with other forms of punishment. These can include:
- Denying you a raise or promotion
- Giving you a poor performance review without evidence
- Demoting you or reducing your pay
- Giving you extra work that you cannot handle in your condition
- Denying you benefits, such as vacation or paid sick time
