Consider that you have worked nearly your entire life for a company day in and day out for the last 25 years. One day you wake up and realize that you don’t feel like yourself. After a week or so of the funny feeling you decided to visit you doctor. This is when you receive the news that you have a debilitating disease that your doctor suggests may be the result of your occupation and daily work duties.
Immediately you seek treatment for your occupational disease. This costs money that comes out of your pocket for whatever isn’t covered by insurance. You may even have to take a leave of absence from your job in order to best deal with your health. A friend suggests filing for workers’ compensation. After weeks of waiting, your employer denies your request. Now what?
