Wrongful fireing

5 posts in this topic

My separation papers say I was offered an alternative job after being injured on the job and I threatened them with a workman's comp claim. That is written as the reason for dismissal. they also accused me of becoming hostile while exiting the building. I was just upset and had already been fired. On my way out I did call her a controlling B#$%!ch. AT that time I was already fired and leaving. By the way,the job offer was to go home and wait until they called me, with no pay and no benefits....HELP!

I'm not clear what to tell you except to file for unemployment benefits if you're able to work and explain what you did above in terms of what you were told (there's nothing unlawful about filing a workers' comp claim, whether the employer refuses to pay for medical care or not). If the employer insists that you were offered another job where you'd actually be working, it may wind up being their word against yours. It wouldn't make sense for you to quit if there were alternate paid work actually available, and hopefully even if it takes an appeal, the unemployment folks will eventually see this. Given the state of many states' unemployment funds, however, a mere objection by the employer may be a problem. (That said, a letter saying you were fired for "threatening" to exercise a lawful right to file a workers' comp claim should be pointed out to the unemployment folks as being unlawful.)
