Your Rights as an Injured Worker in Medford
Working with Your Employer & Insurance Companies
Every worker in the state of Massachusetts has the right to a safe and
healthy work environment. When on-the-job injuries do occur — whether
minimum safety standards were met or not — the employer is financially
liable for their employee's injuries. This includes both the cost
of medical treatment and compensation for lost wages.
Additional employee rights include:
- The right to pursue needed medical treatment
- The right to appeal a workers' compensation decision
- The right to be represented by a workers' compensation attorney
- The right to refuse illegal employer requests
Employers are not allowed to request for an employee to pay for their own
medical expenses or to
not file a
workers' compensation claim. In addition, employers are prohibited from putting any obstacles
in the way of filing a workers' compensation claim or harassing their
employees for doing so.
