My spouse had a seizure at work fell down a flight of stairs and sustained a great deal of injuries to include a coma. After he was released to return to work he was demoted with a decrease in pay is this legal?
He is probably an "employee at will" so the answer is probably yes, unless it was due to him filing a workers' comp claim. He may have a good workers' comp case to pursue. He fell due to idiopathic reasons, which are not covered, but his injuries are worse due to the risks of employment-the stairs-so a good workers' comp lawyer probably could make it work for him.See question
