Discrimination based on a workers’ compensation claim
It is illegal for an employer to fire you or punish or retaliate against you in any way for filing a workers’ compensation claim. Potential new employers also may not discriminate against you for having filed a claim in the past or for receiving benefits. If you believe you have been discriminated against due to a workers’ compensation claim, you may file a claim with the New York Compensation Board within 2 years of the incident.
