Why won't my employer take me back if I get hurt?

We see if often. Someone gets hurt at work. The company says you can return to work, but your boss will not take you back. I hear this all the time.

Your doctor gives you "temporary work restrictions," but your boss says you cannot come back unless you have "no restrictions." Not only is that short-sighted as an employer, it is illegal.

There are various state and federal laws that prevent an employer from discriminating against an injured worker.

We see far too many employers who want to get rid of older, higher-paid employees so they can be replaced with younger workers with lower pay and lower benefits.

Do not let this happen to you. If you think you have been discriminated against by your employer because you have suffered an injury, you need to call us right now.
