I work as a software developer (worked for the company for 3 years). I work with 2 other more senior developers. Since they are more senior than I, they felt it is OK to be disrespectful, rude, and condescending to me (and others). The only other employee left the team because of them. I explained to my manager that this environment was causing me stress and counterproductive to my ability to do my job. He said he would take care of it, but apparently hasn't. When these developers realized I had complained about them, they began to falsely accuse me of not completing my work and provide reports to my manager that my work quality is substandard. I did see a doctor to document my stress on the job. I was fired yesterday due to their negative feedback of me. Do I have a worker's comp case?
There are many types of personal injuries for which financial damages can be awarded, including physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.
Employees can sue for damages if they’ve suffered work-related injuries. These lawsuits are separate from workers’ compensation and cover more kinds of injury.
