Will my employer fire me if I make a workplace accident claim in Corby?
Have you been the victim of an accident in the workplace? There are many different incidents that can occur. A lot of people suffer injuries that develop over time because of the nature of their work or their working environment, such as industrial deafness, vibration white finger and repetitive strain injury. There are then accidents that occur in the workplace because of poor health and safety. Some industries are of course more prone to this than other, such as the construction industry. Yet accidents can happen anywhere.
When it comes to making a workplace accident claim in Corby, a lot of people are worried about their employer’s reaction. In fact, some individuals go as far as to not make a claim because they are worried about causing friction or being fired. Thus they miss out on the compensation they would have been entitled to. We don’t want this to happen to you and therefore it is important to be aware of the fact that you will not be sacked by your employer. They know that it is their duty to provide you with a safe working environment and if they have failed to do so they know they will have to compensate you. Plus, they should have insurance in place to cover them.
Moreover, your employer would only land himself or herself in further hot water by firing you, as you would have grounds for unfair dismissal. The only thing you need to do to make sure the whole process runs smoothly is handle everything as it should be. You should report the incident to your employer or safety representative. They will need to record it in the accident book, which they are required to have by law.
