What do I do if my working conditions are unsafe?

We frequently write about how important it is for American workplaces to be as safe as is reasonably possible. Federal and state laws govern working conditions for one critically important reason: Without access to safe working conditions, American workers tend to suffer injury, illness and even death as a result of unsafe conditions.

The surprising hazards associated with nail salon work

The New York Times recently published a series of articles detailing just how hazardous it has become to be a nail salon technician. One would initially think that this line of work is no more hazardous than working in a hair salon is. Like hair stylists, nail technicians need to interact with some questionable chemicals, need to avoid slipping on slick floors and need to properly sterilize their tools. However, recent evidence and countless stories are adding up to shocking conclusions about the hazards of life as a nail technician.

Workers' compensation benefits coverage timeline

If you are considering filing a workers’ compensation claim or if you have already done so and been granted benefits, you may have questions about how long you can continue to receive those benefits. Answers to these questions will generally be specific to your circumstances. As a result, it is generally a good idea to consult an attorney experienced in matters of workers’ compensation in order to discuss the nuances of your situation. However, there are some general rules that you can certainly keep in mind while preparing questions for your attorney.

What to expect when returning to work after workers' comp

As the day progresses, you start to think about how you're going to enjoy your evening -- and then right at that moment, a terrible work accident occurs and you suffer serious injuries as a result. Your evening no longer matters, because your whole future is of far more concern at this moment.
