Nashville 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 workers’ comp lawyers at Ponce Law have years of experience with these cases, and when companies cross the line—we’ll hold them accountable.
