Lenexa Workers Compensation Lawyer discusses Retaliatory Discharge
Most employment in Kansas is “at will.” This means you work at your will and at the will of your employer. However, there are certain actions an employer cannot take. Of these prohibited actions, an employer cannot terminate an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim or for complaining about discrimination in the workplace. If you have been retaliated against for either, you have legal options.
