Boss won't file WC for hubby and I am afraid to do it... - hellokitty - 05-05-2011

I am in NC and hubby fell a few days ago getting off a ladder and has back pain. His company sent him to a general doctor and he was given a letter limiting his job duties( he works in heavy construction and he is now allowed to walk a little and mostly sit) and ordered Physical therapy. His boss is paying for everything out of his pocket and says he is not filing a Worker's compensation claim because he will lose contracts for the company. His boss feels since this was a small fall that my husband will be fine soon and is really only taking advantage of the doctors notes. What do I do? Thanks. K
