Can workplace noise have psychological consequences?

As you are aware, loud noises can damage your hearing, as well as cause other physical problems, such as tinnitus and migraines. However, you and other Californians may not realize that chronic noise, even on a quieter level, may have damaging mental effects that can potentially affect your ability to perform your job.

5 ways workers’ compensation might not work for you

As you know, workers’ compensation helps employees in California and elsewhere who were injured on the job. You might wonder if there are some incidents that workers’ compensation won’t cover. At the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez, we are prepared to answer your questions if this is a concern for you.

Are invisible conditions hard to prove for worker’s compensation?

Physical injuries can seem cut-and-dry for employees in California. If you slip on a wet floor in the office and get a concussion and fractured arm, it may be a simple matter to get workers’ compensation for these injuries. However, work-related injuries and illnesses that are not easily seen by others and frequently missed or misdiagnosed by doctors can be more challenging.

Denials and appeals of workers' compensation

If you have been injured in an on-the-job accident, developed an injury due to an environmental factor at your place of work or contracted a work-related illness, you may believe that you should be able to claim workers' compensation benefits. Many people in California do quality for and collect these benefits in such situations but receiving an approval for a claim is anything but automatic. In fact, there are some situations in which claims are denied or people are not offered the level of benefits they might deserve.

The dangerous side effects of healthcare bullying

When you graduated from high school, you hoped you had left bullying behind for good. Unfortunately, as we at the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez are aware, many adults still take part in bullying behaviors at work. For countless Californians in the healthcare field, workplace bullying is a pervasive problem.

How can I tell if my work environment is toxic?

Not all jobs are easy. Even if you enjoy your job, some aspects of work can make it challenging and at times unpleasant. For you and other Californians, your workplace can qualify as hostile. It is important to understand the factors of a hostile work environment, because the constant stress it places on you might cause health issues that you should not ignore.

Understanding workers compensation in california

As much as most California employees would like to think they have prepared for the worst, accidents tend to happen when one least expects them. Safety risks could become all the more prevalent in the working environment, where workers often have higher stress levels. Whether it was from attempting to multitask or a mere slip and fall, an accident on the job is a serious matter that may require workers compensation procedures.

The dangers of workplace slips, trips and falls

At the Law Offices of Hussain & Gutierrez in California, we know that your workplace can be a dangerous place at times. Despite the fact that many workplaces, particularly construction sites, are full of heavy equipment and potentially dangerous machinery, the biggest danger you face in any workplace is injury from a slip, trip or fall.
