Treated Unfairly After Reporting A Work Injury?

The workers' compensation statute in Missouri says that your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you in any manner for reporting a work-related injury or filing a claim for compensation under Missouri's workers' compensation laws. Your company is not allowed to demote you, harass you, reduce your hours, fire you or retaliate against you in any other way.

That all sounds nice in theory, doesn't it? But at Hollingshead & Dudley, we know that employers don't always comply with the law. Just because your employer isn't supposed to retaliate against you for filing a workers' compensation claim doesn't mean that it didn't happen anyway.

That's why we're here. With decades of trial experience and a strong record of results in employment law cases, our lawyers can fight this uphill battle for you.

"I find great satisfaction in representing ordinary people against the large companies or government entities that have disregarded state and federal employment laws," says attorney Jeremy Hollingshead. "The law is far too complicated for most employees to obtain justice on their own. That's where this firm steps in and makes a real difference."

Even If You Didn't File A Workers' Comp Claim, You May Still Have A Case

You don't have to file a workers' compensation claim in order to have a case. Even if all you did was report your on-the-job injury to your boss, and you suffered retaliation for it, you do have a case.

Maybe you hurt your back lifting boxes, you notified your supervisor, and the next day you were mysteriously laid off. Or maybe you developed carpal tunnel syndrome from typing too much, but when you told your supervisor about it, you were demoted.

It doesn't matter whether or not you actually filed a workers' compensation claim. If you were discriminated against for reporting a workplace injury, your company acted unlawfully. You deserve justice. You may also deserve financial compensation for the wrong done to you.
