Why lump sums work well for employers and injured workers

When injured workers file workers’ compensation claims, benefits may be given to workers in lump sums or in multiple smaller amounts. According to a study conducted by the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute, providing injured workers with lump sum settlements actually inspire a more speedy return to the workplace.

Do chemical flavorings place workers at risk?

Over the past several years, American consumers have become increasingly savvy about the foods that they eat, the beverages they drink and the drugs they ingest. Instead of embracing the kinds of prepackaged foods that once wowed the American public, more individuals are shying away from processed foods. One of the main reasons why processed and prepackaged foods are being increasingly shunned is that many contain artificial flavorings and colorings. It is thought that many artificial and chemically manufactured ingredients are unsafe for consumption.

Hospital workers remain at risk of serious injury

Many physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers work tirelessly to ensure that sick and injured patients receive the care that they need to survive, recover and ultimately thrive. And yet, many of these workers risk their own health and wellbeing simply by showing up for work. According to the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 35,000 work-related injuries which ultimately result in missed work occur among nurses every year in the U.S. And this statistic does not even factor into consideration the injuries that physicians and support staff suffer.
