The Public Protection Act makes it illegal for Tennessee employers to retaliate against workers like you for any reason. At Ponce Law, we’re dedicated to standing up for workers’ rights. If your employer retaliated against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim, contact our Nashville workers’ compensation attorneys at 615-244-4325 or fill out a free initial consultation form.

Why Do Employers Retaliate Against Employees?

Employers may retaliate against workers who file workers’ compensation claims for a number of reasons, such as:

  • To avoid paying workers’ compensation benefits
    Employers who are more concerned with profits than their workers’ health and well-being may use threats to convince injured workers to drop their claims, so they can avoid paying benefits.
  • To reduce the number of workers’ compensation claims
    Some employers may try to make examples of employees who file workers’ compensation claims to discourage others from also filing claims after they suffer on-the-job injuries.

Company owners, managers, or supervisors who discriminate against employees for filing workers’ compensation claims are in violation of Tennessee law. The Nashville workers’ compensation attorneys at Ponce Law have years of experience with these cases, and when companies cross the line — we’ll hold them accountable.

    Brian and Cheyenne made my first experience with an attorney's office a breeze. I'm thrilled with the outcome of my case—the settlement exceeded my expectations. A friend's mother recommended Ponce Law, and I'm so glad she did. The support I received was crucial, especially during the 2-3 weeks I was out of work. Thanks, Ponce Law, for delivering results beyond what I anticipated.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
