Dealing with back pain in the California workplace

Almost any worker in any role can suffer from back pain. Working as an employee often involves sitting in a certain position or engaging in certain repetitive actions for an extended period of time. This can lead to back pain for many people, and it can lead to excruciating periods when work feels impossible.

Getting fired after an accident in a California workplace

A person in the California workplace can be fired for many reasons, and the employer in question does not actually need to give a reason at all for the termination of employment. This can seem confusing when a worker gets fired and worries that he or she has been fired for a discriminatory or an unfair reason. If the employer does not need to give a reason for the termination, then it might seem true that any reason at all can be grounds for legal termination.

Does my California employer need workers' compensation insurance?

In the state of California, almost all employers need to have workers' compensation insurance coverage. Usually however, very large companies are able to start their own type of insurance coverage, and therefore, do not need to engage in the governmental workers' compensation program. Similarly, very small companies may not need to.

Taking action after being denied workers' compensation

When you suffer from an injury in the workplace, you will likely go through a great deal of suffering and have to pay a significant amount of medical bills when having treatment. It is also possible that you will lose wages as a result of needing to take unpaid leave.

Your employer's duties after you get injured at work

When you get injured in the workplace, you may have to take unpaid leave in order to recover physically and emotionally. The government recognizes that employee injuries in the workplace can come at a great cost because of this, so they ensure that nonexempt companies have a legal duty to take out workers' compensation insurance. This means that when one of the company's employees suffers from an injury, they have the opportunity to file a workers' compensation claim and get reimbursed for the expenses that they were subject to as a direct result of the injury.
