Will your social media pages hurt your workers' comp claim?

Perhaps you are one of those people who use Facebook or other social media to express your daily frustrations at work, with traffic or anything that disrupts your day. On the other hand, you may see social media as a way to spread positive feelings, so you post only those events in your life that might inspire someone else.

Workers' compensation: Fall protection violations

Falls are some of the most significant hazards to which workers in all industries are exposed.

It would be interesting to know whether the lack of fall protection also features near the top of workers' compensation claims in California.

Various studies have indicated that working extended shifts could increase stroke risks. Those at risk might have questions about their chances of receiving workers' compensation benefits should they suffer strokes at work, or even at home, but as a result of long working hours.
