It is unlawful in Alabama for an employer to fire a worker solely because the worker pursued workers compensation benefits. Some employer’s fire injured workers immediately following their injuries not conscious of the unlawfulness of their conduct. Others are completely aware of the unlawfulness of their conduct, but try to create schemes to cover up the true wrongful motivation of the firing. It takes experience and ingenuity to successfully pursue a retaliatory discharge case. Mr. Berry has handled many of these cases and obtained a successful jury verdict for over $100,000.00 in such a case in 2013.
