So long story short I had gotten hurt off the clock at my work but I was there with the Assistant managers knowledge and a week after the incident they gave me a write up for getting hurt and declined my workers comp for a foot injury. When i asked my assistant manager about the situation he said he had no clue I got a write up and wont tell the person who gave me the write up he said it was ok for me to be there. I do have the text of him saying its ok. So basically all of our write ups are online threw a app and there is only a "Decline" Button and a "acknowledge" button with the option to type in some employee notes but that is it. So if I hit acknowledge is that admitting i was in the wrong or again that I just have read the write up (Personal Action Form).
Technically it is only acknowledging receipt. However, if I were on the other side and this came up in either an employment discrimination case or an unemployment claim I would argue that by failing to include any comments in the employee comment section you admitted or agreed with what was detailed in the write-up.
