Will my workplace injury or accident at work affect my employment?

Your injury in the workplace should not affect your current employment. We completely understandable that you will be concerned and worried about how your employer may react to you bringing a claim for the injuries you suffered whilst at work. It is worth noting that your employment position is protected in law especially after you have been employed for over a year (or two years from April 2012). Please do not be concerned as your employer cannot and should not treat you differently because you are bringing a claim. Your workplace accident claim is usually negotiated with your employer’s insurance company so rest assured that this means your claim is treated like a business transaction with the insurance company rather than a highly personal dispute with the employer.
