Kentucky workers are accorded various rights under the law. These laws protect them from wrongful termination, wage discrimination, sexual harassment, disability discrimination and more. If a worker is injured on the job or suffers from an illness or condition from the work they were doing, they may need to seek workers' compensation benefits. Employers are not allowed to retaliate against employees who need workers' compensation. Still, some will do just that to deprive the worker of those benefits and to dissuade other workers from doing the same. Having legal help is crucial to combat workers' compensation retaliation.
There are some employers who foster a work atmosphere where employees believe they could be subject to retaliation for filing a worker's compensation claim.
