It can be a dangerous thing going to work. According to government statistics nearly 850 people were killed while at work while around 80,000 received injuries. What’s more around a million are living with ongoing conditions which they believe have been caused by their working environment. If you’re one of these people this page will help you launch a claim for compensation in Mountain Ash.
Claiming Against your Employer
As these figures show there are too many companies which are not fulfilling their duty of care towards their employees. Health and safety too often received insufficient attention from employers who bank on their workers being too frightened of their job safety to make a claim.
What’s more the support being given by employers is on the decrease. A rise in zero hours contracts and temporary work placements reduces the requirement of employers to offer competitive benefits such as holiday and sick pay to their employees. If you get injured then, life can be tough. Any time you take off work might be deducted from your wage packet … and so worried are you about losing what few benefits you do have that you refuse to make a claim.
Things Standing in your Way
The biggest concern facing people is what retribution employers might take if they were to exercise their right to claim compensation. The good news here is that any employer who sacks you for making a claim or who takes any form of action against you has crossed the line and could well be open to further action as a result.
But it’s not just straightforward sackings that people might be worried about. Sometimes they are also concerned that bosses might make their life in the office intolerable. If this happens then you also have a case to make against your boss for things such as unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal.
