HOW TO NOTIFY YOUR EMPLOYER OF AN ACCIDENT

Many working men and women in New York believe that Workers' Compensation is an automatic benefit. They become understandably frustrated when that proves not to be true, and they are forced to wait for a weekly benefit check and for proper medical treatment.

CONSTRUCTION WORKER TRAINING BILL FOR SAFETY

I am sharing this article which is of importance to all New Yorkers, but especially to my clients and friends who are construction workers, and who work with scaffolds, and doing asbestos removal, and doing demolition. As the article states, workplace accidents keep rising. That is terrible and it must be stopped! New York's business owners, politicians, and community leaders must get together to make New York a Zero Workplace Accident state!

DOS RECIENTES VICTORIAS EN CIERROS "GLOBALES" EN DEMANDAS DE LESIONES PERSONALES/ Y CASOS DE COMPENSACIÓN DE LOS TRABAJADORES

Muchas personas no saben que hay una conexión legal entre un caso de compensación de trabajadores y una demanda de lesiones personales que surgen del mismo accidente. La ley no quiere que el trabajador lesionado recupere el 100% de su beneficio de compensación de los trabajadores y también el 100% del dinero de la demando de lesión personal, o la negligencia. Un trabajador lesionado recibe los beneficios de compensación de trabajadores y, al final de la demanda de lesiones personales, debe pagar parte de eso beneficios de nuevo a la compañía de seguros de compensación de trabajadores. Esto aplica a varios casos, incluyendo lesiones devastadoras que provienen de accidentes de andamio, o accidentes de demolición o construcción, o caídas de ascensor, donde la discapacidad puede durar toda la vida. Sin embargo, hay formas de proteger y maximizar los beneficios que necesita para protegerse a sí mismo y a su familia. Hoy quiero contarles sobre el acuerdo de compensación de los trabajadores / trabajadores personales "global".

Should federal contractors have to disclose safety violations when bidding for jobs?

Congress doesn't think so. What are the implications for workers?

Monday night, Congress voted along party lines to eliminate the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Rule, a federal rule created by the Obama administration. The regulation on the chopping block limits companies with recent safety violations to bid for federal contracts unless they agree to remedies. It was designed to protect workers from labor law violations by the contractors that employ them.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SSD DATE OF DISABILITY

If you are totally disabled for a serious medical condition--from spinal fusion or other surgery, to shoulder or knee replacement, to diabetes or cancer, or any other serious disabling condition--one of the most significant parts of your case is your EOD, or established onset date.

Second Avenue Subway now open for business

Calling himself "cautiously optimistic" last December, Governor Andrew Cuomo pressed MTA workers and officials to make the January 1 deadline for the Second Avenue Subway. Public works aren't known for meeting deadlines or budgets, but the Q train was indeed up and running (the N runs at rush hour as well), serving an estimated 200,000 daily riders on the Upper East Side.
