Termination Or Discrimination
Do you feel that you are being discriminated against because of your work-related injury? Were you fired or laid off after being injured and you believe the termination was based on the fact that you filed a workers’ compensation claim? If so, you need a skilled Connecticut lawyer who will stand up for your legal rights and best interests.
You will find such advocates at D’Agosto & Howe, LLC. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, our Bridgeport workplace discrimination attorneys are committed to vigorously protecting our clients’ interests in a wide range of workers’ compensation matters, including unlawful termination or discrimination claims.
If You Were Wrongfully Fired, We Can Help You Pursue Financial Damages
We are commonly asked about job security and whether filing a workers’ compensation claim will result in job termination. Here, Connecticut law is quite clear: The law protects an injured worker’s right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits.
No employer may terminate or otherwise discriminate against an employee because the employee pursued a workers’ compensation claim. If illegal discrimination or termination is proven, the employee may be awarded job reinstatement, back pay and re-establishment of benefits, in addition to the punitive sanction of awarding attorneys’ fees.
From taking depositions from managers and conducting other types of discovery to presenting the case in court, our lawyers will handle every detail in pursuit of justice and compensation for you.
