Congratulations to Christopher Fernandez, who has been an integral part of our firm for several years while also attending law school at night. Chris displayed his gift for persuasive oral argument at the finals of regional rounds of the 68th Annual National Moot Court Competition. We have no doubt he's going to take the rest of the country by storm!
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.
Mi Paralegal principal, Elizabeth Ríos, asistido a la reciente Foro Cívico de Latinos de la Ciudad de Nueva York en nombre de nuestra oficina, The Klein Law Group. Liz informa que conoció a algunos viejos amigos, e hizo algunos nuevos. Fue un honor para nosotros ser parte de este gran programa, apadrinado por el Instituto de Murphy de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York.
A new survey suggests that domestic workers are grossly underpaid and overworked despite New York's 2010 Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights stipulates that employers must at least pay a domestic worker, such as a nanny or cleaner, minimum wage and provide overtime and paid days off. It would appear that there is still a lot of scrubbing to do within the system in order to ensure these laws are followed.
Pleasure boats may be a source of leisure and excitement for many, but we must not forget that they are still dangerous. They are powerful vehicles with components that are sharp and can become hot to the point that they could cause third-degree burns. Boats are also filled with gasoline and run in hot weather that could cause fumes to ignite.
