Many employees indicate that they are treated differently once they file a workers’ compensation case or indicate that the employer makes them work with restrictions. As such, they indicate that they want to quit their job.
At the Law Office of J.J. Talbott, we do not recommend any employee quit their job. If you quit your employment, then the employer will have a defense that you voluntarily limited your income and this could prevent you from receiving any type of temporary partial disability benefits or permanent total disability benefits. Quitting your job could also reduce the value of your case. Instead, we recommend that the employee make sure that the employer provides work within the restrictions and not work outside of the restrictions.
If you think your employer is making you work outside of your restrictions, you need to speak to an attorney immediately, but do not quit your employment.
