Under Illinois’ workers’ compensation law, your employer cannot retaliate against you after you file a workers’ comp claim.

This means you cannot be fired or demoted. It means you cannot be have your pay cut or your hours slashed. It means you should be safe to file for the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve after a workplace injury.

Of course, it’s not always that simple. At Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd., we understand that you might be reluctant to in any way agitate the company which provides your living. And we also understand that companies don’t always strictly follow the spirit of the no-retribution law- businesses can be exceptionally creative in finding ways to retaliate.

There’s nothing wrong with hoping that everything goes smoothly. But should problems arise with your claim or with your employer, you’ll be glad you had our passionate, experienced workers’ compensation lawyers working for you.
