Most employers in California and across the country are required to provide workers' compensation coverage to their employees. In the event you suffer a work injury, this means you should be able to obtain medical treatment and wage loss benefits. Unfortunately, some people find themselves let go from their places of employment soon after submitting workers' comp claims. Is this coincidence or retaliation?
When people talk about retaliation in the workplace, they give the impression that it is always right out there in your face, so to speak. However, that isn't always the case.
Whether your termination came out of the blue or you sensed it brewing for some time, losing your job is not easy. However, you may be relieved to leave this job if it has been an unpleasant experience. Perhaps it has been beyond unpleasant if you dealt with discrimination or other hostility from your employer or coworkers.
