You should not be forced to work in an environment that is dangerous. A lack of safety or a number of hazards at your jobsite may violate OSHA regulations. Your employer refuses to take action, so you feel the need to contact the authorities regarding the safety violations. You may even have suffered an injury, requiring a workers’ comp claim.
Holding Your Employer Accountable for Wrongful Discharge
In the end, your employer uncovers the source of the complaint and discovers your workers’ compensation claim, then terminates you, resulting in a wrongful discharge. He or she has just made a bad situation that much worse through his or wrongfully discharging an employee. In addition to having to deal with OSHA, he or she now has to deal with an attorney at the Employee Rights Law Firm.
