Many of our clients tell us that they start to get written up for trivial things after they report a work injury. This type of behavior from your employer could be considered retaliatory. If your employer is retaliating against you, try to remain calm. You do not want to overreact in a way that it would ruin your workers’ comp case. A separate action can be brought in civil court for Retaliation. Also, do not give your employer an excuse to fire you. If you are late or get into arguments with the people retaliating against you, it will give your employer the ammunition they need to fire you. We recommend for you to be alert, aware, and smart.
