Do CA's "old" laws protect workers injured in "new" gig economy?

Are employers retaliating against immigrant workers who report work-related injuries?

deportation2.jpegAccording to a recent report by WBUR News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents detained a 37-year-old injured construction worker when he went to meet with his employer to discuss potential injury benefits - benefits the employer was supposedly offering to help the worker's family while he was recovering from his injury.

Is workers' comp my only option following an on-the-job injury?

construction cartoon2.jpgSuffering a work-related injury can be devastating. In one fell swoop, you may be left unable to work and facing extensive medical treatment/rehabilitation. And, without a paycheck coming in, paying your bills is easier said than done.

Hurt at work? Denied the care you need? You are not alone.

"What Does NOT Constitute Harassment Or Discrimination?"

It is not unusual for unfair or degrading or unpleasant things to happen on the job. Many of us have hurtful experiences at the hands of supervisors, co-workers and customers. But not every slight in the workplace makes a good legal case.

Big Pharma's solution to workplace injury is often more pills

If you have been injured on the job, and are in pain, your doctor is likely to prescribe a painkiller. Chances are that painkiller will be an opioid - Fiorional, Tylenol or Empirin with codeine, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, oxycodone, Demerol®, Vicodin®, Oxycontin®, Dilaudid, Percocet®, Percodan, Norco or another opioid.
