Undocumented, non-English speaking workers have many questions

Over the holidays, many California companies in counties such as Orange County, Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County employ temporary workers to cope with the increased workloads. Industries include agriculture, construction, warehousing, retail and more. The latter two may not seem like industries that could pose serious injury hazards. However, workers at all levels of employment regardless of their nationalities are entitled to workers' compensation coverage if they suffer on-the-job injuries.

Are there laws that restrict or prohibit barefoot driving?

The short answer is, of course, maybe. While there are not federal or state laws that specifically regulate or prohibit barefoot driving, that does not cover local ordinances which may or may not include such restrictions. Barefoot driving usually comes up during the spring and summer, so to preempt those question, this post will go over the dangers of barefoot driving and how it intersects with the law.

A review of no-zones in large trucks

Tractor-trailer or semi-trucks are necessary and deadly machines on the highways. They compose a very small slice of overall traffic but account for a large number of fatalities. For example, in 2014 there were 3,660 deaths that were related or caused by semi-trucks. A number of these fatalities are due to passenger vehicles entering into semi-truck no-zones. This post will go over the dangers of no-zones and how you can stay safe on the road.

Soft tissue injuries can cause chronic pain to warehouse workers

Are you working in a warehouse or in the retail industry where continuous lifting and moving of merchandise can cause chronic pain? Although sprains and strains are prevalent in these industries, they are preventable. However, to create an environment that will eliminate these soft tissue injuries, both you and your boss might have to make some changes.

OSHA releases new rules to improve worker safety

Falls remain a consistent cause of worker injuries and fatalities. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is tasked with studying workplace safety and implementing rules to curb injuries and fatalities. A rash of regulations from 1950 to modern times has significantly improved worker safety. In furtherance of that goal, OSHA is releasing new rules to prevent more falls from the same level as well as heights.

What if my employer doesn't have workers' compensation insurance?

All employers in the state of California are required to have workers' compensation insurance. If your employer does not, they are violating the law. Because some employers may not have the insurance to cover injured workers, California has put a special fund in place called the Uninsured Employers Benefits Trust Fund (UEBTF).
