A survey commissioned by National Accident Helpline finds that the majority of those who continued to work for the same employer after claiming for a work injury found that their relationship with their boss remained unaffected.
The survey found that 81% of people who suffered a work injury were worried about claiming against their employer. However, over 60% of those who did claim and continued to work for the same company found that their relationship with their boss either hadn't changed for the worse or had improved. Those who didn't continue working for the same employer cited a number of reasons for moving on, including natural career progression and retirement.
“The statistics highlight an interesting point - we often paint our bosses in a bad light when in reality many employers are actually understanding. They want to ensure that they aren’t further compromising their duty of care by implementing safety features to help prevent the accident happening to another individual.”
*Respondents were over 18 and included people who have made a work accident claim with National Accident Helpline as well as those who have not claimed before.
