I agree with the other attorney. Based upon the facts presented, it is possible that you may have a claim for retaliation associated with your worker's compensation claim. I would recommend you contact a qualified employment attorney and discuss the matter in more detail. My firm has a Melbourne office and a very skilled labor attorney there that might be able to help.
