My dad committed suicide at his job site this past month and I wonder do I have rights to file a claim with the state of Alabama? My dad's workers comp. provider denied a claim.
A note was left saying he done it because of his job. He was accused of sexual harrassment 3 years ago and he couldn't ever get it out of his mind. He was found to be innocent of the allegations; however, the damage was done. The woman that made these allegations was accomadated in getting all her vacation back and was moved to another area where in turn they built an office for her. It is a very long story but this is the best way to describe it.
My dad was just told he was cleared of all allegations; however, that was it. No counseling was offered for him.
Now after he committed suicide the company is enacting a way for fellow employees to notice depression in coworkers.
