What if my Florida employer tells me not to file a workers' comp claim or threatens to fire me if I do?

Under Workers' comp law, Florida law, you're protected if your employer takes any action against you for filing a workers' comp claim such as firing you, retaliating against you in any way. You can actually file a separate lawsuit against them and seek damages for them taking that type of action.

Now, if your employer tells you to not file a workers' comp claim, I would recommend that you discuss that with a lawyer, so you know what your rights are and what your abilities are under workers' comp.
