Workers' compensation after fatal accidents in the workplace

It's hard to predict when and why work accidents happen, but there are safety regulations and rules in place to make things as safe as reasonably possible. Many fatal incidents in the workplace are the result of unpredictable factors and unexpected events, making it harder for employers to be vigilant regarding safety. After a death, a grieving California family has the right to pursue death benefits through a workers' compensation claim.

Are you facing retaliation for reporting workplace safety issues?

When you go to work, you have the right to a reasonable expectation of safety. This means that you have the right to assume your employer will put forth an appropriate effort to remove as many safety hazards as possible. In fact, there are both state and federal laws that mandate that employers make worker safety a priority. 

New laws will impact California workplace discrimination claims

When a person experiences unfair treatment in the workplace, it is that worker's right to speak out and take legal action. In many cases, this involves speaking out about experiencing workplace discrimination. While anyone who experiences this in the workplace can take legal action, there is a limited amount of time to do so. Thanks to new California laws that will come into effect in January, this timeframe will be longer.

Has mistreatment at work caused you to suspect discrimination?

Being employed is an important aspect of most California residents' lives. You may have had to search long and hard before you found a position that fit your skills, and you may have felt elated when you landed the job. However, after some time in your position, you may have begun to feel as if something was not right.
