Reporting DiscriminationTuesday, April 9, 2013
Have you been fired or experienced some sort of unfair treatment after claiming or trying to claim Worker’s Compensation? If so, you should be aware that your employer is violating The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. There is a penalty of $100 to $500 for each employee that is discriminated against. Form DC-120 must be filled out and sent to the nearest Worker’s Compensation Board District Office within two years of the alleged discrimination if you wish to report such incidents.
Should the board rule in favor of the employee, the employer must restore them to their former position and pay any compensation lost as a result of the discrimination.
