Customer Question
My husband works...

My husband works for a company and while on that job he got hurt but never reported it. He went to doctor and found out he needed surgery on his knee. well he got surgery and he still doesn't feel good. His boss found out abt the whole thing and told him not to worry that his job is secured because of the type of job he does. Then my husband also found out that his boss mentioned it to the main boss and he was like you make sure that what he needs give it to him. We can't lose him. Lately my husband feels that his boss wants to get rid of him because of his attitude towards my husband and because he keeps telling him I can't use u with ur knee pain. my Hubby said he saved them so much money by not reporting it in the first place . He said he didn't report it because at the time he was new and was afraid of losing his job and he thought Injury was just something simple like soreness to his knee. If he gets let go can he sue?

Lawyer's Assistant: Was the injury or condition documented to management or HR?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment "at will," union, full time, or part time?
