When an employer violates workers comp laws

Accidents can happen anywhere, but when they occur on the job, the steps that unfold may differ from those of a typical incident. For instance, most New York employers are required by law to accommodate employees who have suffered an injury while at work. They may be required to supply proof of safety training, documentation of the incident and other information. When an employer appears to have violated a worker's rights, legal action may be the necessary step.

Deaths among construction workers rise

Anyone in New York who has ever worked in a construction job or who has had a loved one employed in construction knows that there are inherent risks involved in work in this industry.

This responsibility spans many things such as providing safety training to people, ensuring all tools and machinery used are in good working order and requiring proper adherence to safety protocols at a minimum.
