Your boss, or employer, has asked to talk to you. You hope that he is calling to inquire about your health and wish you well on your recovery, but you are concerned. What if your employer wants to talk about the accident? What if your employer doesn't want you to come back to work?

Watch What You Say Even If Your Employer Is Also Your Friend

Whether you've worked for your employer for many years, or just a few weeks, you might consider him a friend. You talk about your hobbies, your families, and the ball games every day. He may be someone you trust.

However, it is important to remember that you and your employer may now have competing interests. Accordingly, it is important to watch what you say. While you want to report the accident and your resulting injury to your employer, you do not want to provide your employer with any information that can later be used against you as you negotiate a settlement or take your case to trial. It is often important for you to limit conversations with your employer while your case is pending. Instead, you can have your New York construction attorney negotiate your settlement and then, once the case is settled, you can speak with your employer.
