Can I be dismissed for making a claim?
This is a question that we often hear at Accident Advice Helpline. Most accident at work injury victims in Westminster will want to pursue compensation claims, but may be anxious about the repercussions of making a claim against their employer.
However, employers are required to take out employer’s liability insurance policies. This means that the employer doesn’t pay out of the company funds in the event of a successful claim.
The law also protects employees from unfair dismissal. You will be pleased to know that pursuing compensation for a workplace injury does not constitute reasonable grounds for dismissal!
