Workers' compensation and workplace accident trends

Most California employees have the right to seek compensation and support in the event they suffer injuries in a workplace accident. Through a workers' compensation claim, injured workers can get the help they need to get better and move forward. Across the country, fewer work accidents are being reported, which means the number of these claims is down as well.

How can you file a formal complaint at work?

Some people may feel as if they are no stranger to mistreatment. They may have grown up in difficult family situations or experienced bullying throughout their school years. You may have been among the many who looked forward to adulthood so that you could build a life of your own away from such negative environments.

Should workers' compensation cover mental trauma?

When a California worker suffers an injury on the job, he or she could be eligible for certain benefits. Through a claim filed through the employer's workers' compensation insurance policy, a worker may be able to secure benefits necessary to cover medical bills, a portion of lost wages and more. However, there are some who believe these benefits should also extend to individuals suffering from mental trauma from work. 

Is your employer discriminating against your religious beliefs?

Like many in California and elsewhere, your religious beliefs are important to you. While the practice of your faith may be a private matter, your beliefs may direct the choices you make in your daily life. Your religion is not something you turn off when you go to work, and while you may not openly preach your faith in the workplace, your beliefs may be obvious in your attire, your manners or your actions.

Workplace discrimination because of hairstyle? It's possible

A California lawmaker recently proposed a bill that would provide protections for individuals who wear certain hairstyles in the workplace, primarily African Americans. If passed, the bill would prevent employers from implementing policies about acceptable hairstyles that many claim are a form of workplace discrimination. There are already federal laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace for people who wear afros, but the law does not currently extend to other hairstyles.
