Are you worried about losing your job if you claim?
A big concern for people considering claiming after an accident at work on the Isle of Wight is: what happens after they claim?
They have been hurt in an accident that was not their fault, so they should make a claim, but it is not hard to imagine that their employer might not be too happy about having to pay them compensation.
Though this is an understandable concern – after all, no one wants to put their job at risk – it is not something that should hold you back. Working in a safe environment is your right, and making a claim is also your right if you have been put in harm’s way. The good news is that you have other rights, too.
What we are all entitled to
We are all entitled to have a safe working environment and a certain amount of security in our jobs. This means that you could consider it your duty to make a claim. After all, if your employer has put you at risk, then they could do it to others as well.
But you also have rights to protect you from your employer’s reaction to making a claim. This means that if they threaten your job simply because you stood up for your rights, then they could be on their way to court. It would be illegal for them to discriminate against you, or fire you, for making a claim.
