How to keep your job after making an accident at work claim
One of the things that you do need to bear in mind whenever it comes to accidents at work is that your employer is legally not allowed to let you go because you have made a claim against the company. As long as you have a legal case against them, and they were in fact at fault for your accident, there is no way that they can then fire you simply because you made a claim.
However, this doesn’t stop you feeling vulnerable at work, and for this reason you should always be very careful when making a claim for work injury compensation in Wishaw.
- Let your employer know straight away. If you have decided to make a claim against your employer, you really do need to let them know that you are making a claim as soon as you physically can. Your employer may want to make a deal with you so that the case doesn’t go to court, or will at least be looking to talk over the situation with you.
- Don’t let it affect your work. If you are still able to go into work despite your injuries, then you really should do so. Calling in sick and hiding from the situation not only makes it worse for you in the long run, but it will also give your employer a good enough reason to fire you.
- Be professional whatever happens. If your employer wins the case then you need to be gracious in defeat and be prepared to come back into work as though nothing happened. If you win, then you must behave in the same way. Although you probably could quit your job after all of this, it won’t look good to future employers.
