Workers Compensation for Union Employees
If you feel that you deserve workers' compensation, contacting a skilled workers' compensation attorney is in your best interest. The attorneys at Kantrovitz and Kantrovitz can assist you through each phase of the claims and dispute process. These skilled attorneys can also collaborate with your union representative to protect all of your legal rights.
Union workers have even more rights than traditional workers. Most non-union workers have an employment contract that is "at-will," meaning that the worker can be terminated at the discretion of the employer as long as the employer does not violate state or federal laws in doing so. Union workers are protected by the collective bargaining agreement that the union has with the employer. While most workers cannot be guaranteed that their job will remain open while they recuperate from injuries, a skilled workers' compensation lawyer can work with your union on enforcing your contract rights to retain your position. Union workers can often better prove their claim because their union representatives have access to safety records, complaints regarding workplace injuries and OSHA violations. These important documents can aid a union workers' compensation lawyer.
If you are disabled due to an injury you sustained at the workplace or you lost a loved one as a result of a workplace injury, a skilled attorney can help you receive a lump sum payment to compensate you for the injury or death.
