Re: My Employer is Making Me File a Claim when I Didn't Want To
My back has had problems for over 20 years so all I did was aggravate it. 2 days later the pain was terrible
I called into work
Of course you have to report an injury at the time to afford the employer the opportunity to provide medical treatment and drug test - if they allowed employees to report injuries at their pleasure every drunk and drug addict would have a field day.
is it really required to report every little injury
So which is it, was the pain terrible and you where put on restrictions or was it just a "little injury"
Usually when an employee conceals an injury and waits 2 days to seek treatment there's a reason, why wouldn't you report it at the time and seek treatment?
So you didn't report the injury although "the pain was terrible" then secretly pursued treatment for this "little injury" from your personal doctor, you then present a disability slip to the employer for an injury they know nothing about - that doesn't seem a bit strange to you?
I gave my supervisor a light duty note,
For some reason you're playing games and it's catching up to you.
They won't get fined because you're playing games but they have every reason to fire you.
