How Workplace Lawyers Can Protect Your Rights

April 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 167

Every day, there are a large number of people who become injured at work or who are wrongfully dismissed by their employers. Unfortunately, these occurrences are so commonplace that there is a demand for more workplace lawyers who will do everything in their power to protect your rights whilst at work. But what sorts of situations can they help you with, and how do they ensure that your rights are protected?

• In times of severe cost cutting, many employers will look for ways to fire their employees rather than laying them off (which involves paying out large severance packages). Many employers will turn to excuses and lies about their employees, or may even turn to abusive tactics in order to get the employee to quit. If you believe that this has happened to you, a workplace lawyer can help you to prove that your employer was in the wrong and encourage the judge to award you damages.

• There are cases when an employee has done everything to protect him or herself whilst on the job but, due to negligence on their employer's behalf or to their disregard for safety, a severe accident has occurred that has resulted in the employee experiencing a serious injury. If there are exorbitant medical costs involved or you will be unable to work, a workplace lawyer can ensure that you receive the proper compensation.

• Some employees feel that they are "let go" or fired from a position due to some form of discrimination on their employer's behalf. For example, people who have developed a disability as a result of an accident, who are of a different race or gender or sexual orientation, or who are simply disliked by their employer are let go every day under the pretense of legitimate reasons. If you feel that you can prove such discrimination, a workplace lawyer can help you to prove wrongful dismissal.

• If you suffered an injury at work a number of years ago, your employer and the government may have paid you additional payments in order to help you out during the healing and rehabilitation period. If you have found, however, that you cannot go back to work or find different employment due to your injury, a workplace lawyer can ensure that you continue to receive these payments to sustain you.

As you can see, there are a number of situations that the employment of a workplace lawyer can be of great benefit (plus many more that have not been listed above). You do not have to face compensation boards, insurance companies and even your employer on your own - contact a workplace lawyer and discover how they can help you today.
