If your employer pressures you not to file a workers’ compensation claim, it’s important to know that this is illegal and could result in serious consequences for your employer. Under Georgia law, it is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees who file workers’ compensation claims, and this includes pressuring employees not to file a claim.
If you are experiencing pressure from your employer not to file a workers’ compensation claim, you should take the following steps:
- Document the pressure: Keep a record of any conversations or interactions where your employer pressures you not to file a claim. This can help support your case if you need to take legal action.
- Report the pressure: Report the pressure to your supervisor, HR department, or another designated representative of your employer. If you feel uncomfortable reporting it to them, you can report it directly to the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
- Consult with an attorney: Consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can advise you on your legal rights and options. They can also help you file a claim and take legal action if necessary.
