Former Chipotle manager might need workers' compensation

Suffering an injury on the job is not always the result of a major accident or repeated movements, although this is likely what most people in Missouri think of in terms of work-related suffering. Many people are also at risk for instances of workplace violence. Although this is perhaps an overlooked on-the-job danger, victims may still qualify for workers' compensation.

A former Chipotle manager claims that she suffered a serious injury during a physical altercation that took place at work. On Dec. 4, 2018, one of her employees quit. However, the next day, that same employee returned to work anyway. Instead of clocking in and getting to work, the former employee confronted and then attacked the manager. The disgruntled employee was ultimately arrested for third-degree assault.

The victim of the attack was fired from her position only days later. According to Chipotle, the former manager had used profanity toward a supervisor, a claim which she does not deny. However, since her injuries occurred while at work, she is still asking Chipotle to cover her medical expenses and lost wages.

Receiving workers' compensation after being fired from a job can be confusing, and some Missouri victims might not even realize that they are still eligible to receive benefits. The benefits provided by the workers' comp system are often essential for a full recovery since they ease the financial burden that victims generally deal with. However, the application process can be complicated, particularly for those who are no longer employed where the injury occurred, so working with an experienced attorney can be helpful.
