I have been at my employer over 17 yrs, during that time I made several complaints to management about unsafe working conditions. Instead of correcting practices or conditions I was discriminated and threatened. Now, I was seriously injured in June of this year when my right arm (right handed) was crushed in a machine that malfunctioned and was stuck for over 20 min. with no help, not even through our emergency response channel. I was informed by a nerve specialists it will take a minimum of 1-2 years to get function of my arm and probably not at 100%. I was just informed through my employer that if I can't perform at 100% within 90 days I will be terminated. I already have a workmans comp attorney. Also during that time I was not allowed to take uninterrupted breaks or leave the plant.
