Types of Retaliation
There are many ways in which an unethical employer can make life miserable for an employee who has filed a workers’ compensation claim. If you believe this is happening to you, you need to understand the types of retaliation that are sometimes used by employers who have filed a claim. An employer could suddenly increase an employee’s workload, making it impossible for him to finish.

He could discipline the employee inappropriately or deny an employee’s vacation request. The law firm of Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C. has the experience to see through this maze of negativity and can help you fight for your employment rights.
