I Was Assaulted at Work and They Fired Me. What Do I Do?
If you have been sexually assaulted at work and then fired after, you may have a personal injury claim against your employer. You should contact a personal injury lawyer in Kansas City to evaluate your claim.
Under the law, employers are required to provide a safe working environment for their employees. This includes taking steps to prevent sexual assault from happening in the workplace. If an employer fails to do this and you are sexually assaulted as a result, the employer may be held liable for your injuries.
In addition, if you are fired after reporting a sexual assault, you may have a claim for wrongful termination. Employers are not allowed to retaliate against employees who report sexual misconduct. If you have been fired after reporting sexual assault, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Kansas City to discuss your legal options.
