'Tis the season for heat-related injuries and illnesses at work

The first official day of summer occurs this weekend. However, much of the nation is heating up like it is already mid-summer. It seems that there are few places that one can escape to during the summer months in order to feel truly cool when outdoors during the daylight hours. As a result, it is important for everyone who ventures outside during the day to take heat-related and UV-related precautions.

Workers' compensation for undocumented workers

We have previously written about the fact that both temporary migrant workers and undocumented laborers are at a heightened risk for being injured in the workplace or killed while on the job. These workers are at a heightened risk for a number of reasons, including the fact that many of these individuals do not speak English and their employers may fail to train them properly in a language they can understand.

Workers’ compensation, migraines and you

Migraine sufferers understand that this particular kind of headache can be uniquely debilitating. While other kinds of headaches can be painful, annoying or frustrating, migraines can stop patients in their tracks. Some individuals must take narcotics to help with the pain, while others must simply close the blinds, lie down and wait for the pain to subside. Migraines can last for hours upon hours. It is therefore not surprising that migraine sufferers may be compelled to skip work frequently or forego employment at all, depending on the frequency and severity of their headaches.
