Workers' compensation: Common mistakes employers make

In order to ensure a healthy thriving business, Californian business owners needs to keep their fingers on the pulse of their companies and make sure every aspect is taken care of. This is often not an easy task, and sometimes mistakes are made. Such mistakes may not only negatively impact on the business but also on employees. One important aspect business owners often find daunting is handling workers' compensation.

Experts have identified a number of mistakes commonly made by businesses. One mistake pointed out is unfamiliarity with the system. When the owner and his or her employees understand the program, claims may be dealt with smoothly. A second mistake, which can definitely be detrimental to workers, is a boss that is uninvolved. An involved boss who checks the various jobsites is in the ideal position to identify possible hazards and rectify the matter.   

Other mistakes to avoid include missing important deadlines and lack of attention to the financial aspects related to workers' compensation. Lastly, business owners need to remain cognizant of two aspects that directly impact on their employees as well as themselves. The first is to ensure that they have a clear process for the reporting of injuries in the workplace and that their employees are well informed in this regard. Secondly, should a claim occur, the right people should be communicating with one another.

Workers' compensation matters may be daunting for both employee and employer. Californian business owners who find themselves unclear on the ins and outs of this aspect of their business may benefit from the advice of a lawyer specializing in these matters. To the same extent, an employee who feels that his or her employer is not acting legally in the case of a claim may also benefit from legal advice.
