A workplace injury comes with a whole set of challenges in and of itself. From seeking treatment to having to reorganize your work life as well as duties, getting injured on the job as a federal worker will force you to adopt a steep learning curve as your world is unceremoniously turned upside down. Sometimes, these obstacles can be compounded by harassment and discrimination from supervisors who may not necessarily appreciate the need for you to take it easy for the duration of your injury, leading to tense standoffs as well as a hostile work environment.

Are you an injured federal worker looking to get compensated? If you’ve encountered workplace harassment as a postal worker, or any other branch or employer in the federal government, you may be able to file a special type of claim to help you recover compensation that will go a long way in stemming this behavior as well as ease the pain and suffering you had to endure. Call 1-855-233-3002 RIGHT NOW to speak with an experienced and friendly attorney to learn about what we can do for you.

The Life of an Injured Federal Worker is Never Easy

Injured federal workers may have to go to the hospital multiple times a month for doctors’ appointments, have their workspace rearranged to fit a wheelchair, have ramps installed at the steps leading up to the main door, and work through searing pain in some cases, all the while chasing down compensation for their injured federal worker claim. We empathize and understand how hard this can be for anyone, and having a supervisor on your neck is the last thing you would want during this trying time.

Federal worker workplace harassment can take on many forms:

  • Being verbally harassed or passive aggressively harassed because you’re “slacking off”
  • Supervisors not accommodating your movement needs as an injured or freshly disabled federal worker
  • Being passed off with regard to promotions on account of your injury
  • Having your contract wrongfully terminated due to your injury
  • Being disciplined in an unneeded manner

Workplace harassment and retaliation meted out by supervisors is illegal and punishable by law. Your employer is required to make accommodations except if the adjustment is unreasonably expensive or difficult.
