If you have been the unfortunate victim of an accident at work you may find yourself in a tricky situation. On the one hand, you have had an accident at work that you think you can claim for and, on the other, you don’t particularly want to upset your employer. Worse still, you may be worried that if you rock the boat with your employer he will take the opportunity to get rid of you – now, when you’re at your most vulnerable, or at some time in the future. Do employers hold grudges? Yes, sometimes. It’s a sad fact of life that your concerns may not be groundless.
Know your rights
Every employer should have insurance by law in order to be able to compensate employees who have accidents at work. If your employer does not have this insurance then they should not be able to operate. With this in mind you should rest assured that you have every right to make an accident work claim in the UK. It is your right to make a work accident claim UK if you choose. If your employer then singles you out for retribution you can go through other legal channels for unfair or constructive dismissal and an employment law specialist will be able to help you with this.
Accident at work
If you have an accident at work it is necessary to report it either to your health and safety representative – if you have one – or the Human Resources department.
