Not resolved

My mother worked for the Intown Suites in Aurora, CO for several years as a Housekeeper. She was stuck by a needle and it was immediately reported to the Gm (Chris).

There were witnesses to the incident, however the GM did nothing about it. No incident report was made to corporate and he never offered medical treatment. My mother does not have insurance and can not afford to go to the doctor on her own. She could not go and file under Workers Comp without approval from management.

This incident was a couple of months ago. Several calls were made to corporate and voicemails were left. Not one person called back. My mother was then fired, however the manager (Chris) did not follow the company procedures for termination.

My mother has never been written up and the reason given for termination was stated that she was unprofessional. Currently looking for a lawyer to file suit against this company.

Reason of review: No medical Treatment after being stuck by needle, then employee was fired!.

Preferred solution: Lawsuit.

Something tells me that there is no paper trail beginning with an incident report the day of the event.

It should have begun there and continued only in writing, sent via Certified Mail return receipt requested.

You don't need anyone's permission to notify workers' compensation of a job related injury.

Witnesses may or may not be helpful.

What damages are you claiming based upon what evidence or provable expense ?

Medical tests to determine possible infections ? The termination of employment will be viewed as a separate incident and will likely be very difficult to prove malicious intent as the ability to hire or fire at will is pretty much inherent to most jobs.
