Has a work injury robbed you of your ability to work?

A workplace injury can cause struggle and frustration all around. Your employer must fill your position while you recover, and this can be costly. Your family may have to adapt to your injury and the changes it brings to the household. Your spouse may be carrying a heavier burden by caring for you and increasing hours at work to make up for lost income.

Protecting your head and eyes on the job

The workplace injuries that costs employers the most money are those involving the head and nervous system. However, as much as such an injury may cost your employer, it is likely you are the one who pays the higher price. An injury to your head, including your eyes, can change your life forever by robbing you of independence and other blessings too precious for a price tag.

There are three kinds of people on the job site. One kind of worker thinks an accident will never happen to them and others know it's just a matter of time.

A moment of inattention, a piece of faulty equipment or a safety procedure ignored has now cost you a limb.

Medical professionals have highest rate of workplace injuries

You may laugh when you watch medical dramas on TV. The nurses, assistants and aids in immaculate scrubs and perfect hair may spend an entire episode sitting at the bedside of a single patient or wandering around the halls with a cup of coffee and a heartbroken co-worker. You know this is rarely the case, especially in a hospital setting, and you likely have the blisters and bruises to prove it.

Will your legal status keep you from getting workers' comp?

When you go to work each day, do you try your best to avoid attention and simply carry out your duties in the hope that you'll make it safely back to your home without any problems? There are many other undocumented immigrants in California who relate to your current situation. Living as a non-citizen in the United States is especially challenging if you're trying to raise a family in the process. Where your job is concerned, you may worry about getting help if you get injured.

Going to the chapel to get married doesn't guarantee legal status

Perhaps you are among many others in California who mistakenly believed that by marrying a U.S. citizen, you'd automatically become one yourself. By the time you learned that information was not factual, you may have already found yourself in a precarious situation. Do you remain undocumented and hope for the best? It's been duly noted that not only is this illegal, it's typically a very bad idea for many other reasons as well.

Employing non-U.S. citizens in your California business

As a California business owner or manager, you may encounter a time when you need someone with a particular expertise. Your search for the right person may lead you outside the United States, and you need to know whether you can bring that individual into the country to work.
