    I agree with the previous answer. I would suggest that you don't waste your money filing a lawsuit because it would be without merit as the company's policy is lawful. It's unfortunate, but not illegal. Best of luck to you.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but it sounds as though you were terminated for seeking to exercise your rights to worker's compensation benefits. If you were terminated because you were seeking to exercise your rights to worker's compensation benefits, then you were terminated unlawfully. Indiana is an at-will employment state. This means that your employer can fire you for any reason, whether it is a good reason or a bad reason, just as long as it is not an illegal reason. Firing someone...

    If you are asserting a wrongful termination claim, you have two years to file a lawsuit. However, based upon the facts you have provided it is unclear whether you have a wrongful termination claim. Indiana is an at-will employment state. This means your employer can fire you for any reason, whether good or bad, just so long as it is not an illegal reason. Examples of illegal reasons include: race, gender, age, religion, disability, etc... You should probably talk to a local employment law...

You can visit their website at www.eeoc.gov. The other option would be to contact a local employment law attorney to discuss your rights. Best of luck to you.

    Your main recourse would be worker's compensation benefits or short term disability if you have those benefits. Ultimately, the best approach would be to approach your principal or HR person and let them know you want to process the claim as work-related. Under the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act you would be entitled to all of your medical treatment being covered, wage replacement benefits (referred to as temporary total disability benefits), and potentially permanent partial impairment...

    I agree with the previous answer. Your employer is permitted to get feedback from your co-workers, customers, clients, or anyone you interact with. Indiana is an at-will employment state meaning that your employer can fire you for any reason, whether good or bad. In fact, they don't even need a reason. However, if you believer you are being treated unfairly because your employer is targeting you because of your age, gender, race, etc...then you might want to look into filing a charge of...
