I Have Been Written Up after My Workplace Injury. Is This Legal?

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

It is illegal for an employer to deny workers’ compensation when an employee is injured on the job. It is not illegal for that employer to issue a warning or write up to the employee to prevent future instances of injury, especially if your conduct contributed to your injury. However, if your employer is creating a hostile work environment, you may have cause to file additional legal action.
If your employer is using tactics of intimidation or coercion after you file a worker’s compensation claim, you need to report it to one of our attorneys right away. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys can help you add penalties to an employer for hostile actions, and may even be able to assist you in filing a claim based on emotional injury. Intimidation following a workers’ compensation claim is illegal. You have a right to a safe, supportive working environment. We can help ensure you are taken care of when this is not provided to you.
