Workers’ Compensation Retaliation in Boston, Massachusetts

In the state of Massachusetts, it is illegal to demote or to fire an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim.  However, employers sometimes find other ways to show a worker that they’re unhappy about such a claim being filed.  If you have filed a workers’ compensation claim and believe that your employer is trying to retaliate against you, a workers’ compensation attorney can help you deal with retaliation in Boston, Massachusetts.  The law firm of Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C. of Boston, Massachusetts works with employees who have filed workers’ compensation claims and who are enduring retaliation from their employers.  We can help you clarify the issues and deal with the problem successfully.

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.  Then he can give the employee a negative performance review, cut his pay, or fail to give him a deserved promotion.  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.
