And if awarded me my time and pay would be opening a can a worms. And much. Retaliation from works on this cause I would be senior to a lot. Still no answer or help. Just told be happy you have a job !!!!
Either talk with a labor attorney that does union MEMBERS. Or file a complaint with the Piladelphia Regional Office for the National Labor Relations Board. They evaluate your case.
Also, did you not have a Workers Compensation attorney if your injury was On the Job. You should consult with WC attorney if you did not have one. Tell the NLRB everything, but do talk with a Workers Compensation attorney.
I am licensed to practice law only in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Therefore, my knowledge is based primarily on law in those two states and general and Federal legal concepts. My answering your question is offered only as a free courtesy to provide you with general non-specific information. It is intended to help you when you seek and find a local attorney licensed in your state. This answer does NOT create a client-attorney relationship nor create any expectation of confidentiality or privacy concerning your public post. My answer is based only on the limited facts/information that you have presented in your post. For any lawyer to give you full and reliable advice, would require at the least, full one-on-one dialogue(s) with questions and answers being exchanged and any evidence being presented. Before taking any action or deciding to take no action, I recommend that you consult with a local attorney(s) of your choosing; either private or with a non-profit organization that helps individuals without the means for hiring a private attorney. Good luck in your search to find a legal solution to your situation.
