On dated 02 April, My employer fired me, when I was working from home and said I will give you two months' salary as compensation in a month's time and my experience letter and payslips in a week's time. Which he hasn't provided yet. I have a company's laptop with me which... Read more »
Your employer is required to pay you for all the hours you performed work, so if he is still withholding pay from you, you are entitled to your unpaid wages for work you performed. However, employers are not required to offer any kind of severance benefits (pay after employment ends). If this...Read more »

I contracted COVID-19 from my work as a Nurse. I stayed in bed for a week and then 18 days in the ICU. I am on home O2 Therapy for the present time as I continue to suffer from significant shortness of breath among other issues.
You'd want to make sure that each of these providers -workers compensation and the two private disability insurers- are aware that you are receiving or have been approved for other benefits, and the amounts. The long-term effects of covid-19 are still under investigation may take years to...Read more »
I am not sure from your question whether you have had the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission issue an award or if you are still on weekly benefits due to temporary total disability. However, the general answer is that since cannabis is a legal substance, as long as the doctor does not...Read more »
Worker’s compensation doctors are bias and they send you back to work even though in most case they shouldn’t. The law says you have to treat with them but the law allows you to be evaluated by a neutral doctor one time to know your true disability and your true need for future treatment. Once...Read more »
This is not workers comp. It is more in the field of wage and hour compliance. Google the NJ Department of Labor. Go to the tab on Worker Protection and wage and hour compliance will pop up. That will make for good background reading. if you don't have the answer after that contact a wage...Read more »
I am a relatively new employee. I started working about a month ago. That is around the time in which I began getting pain in my arms and strong numbness in my fingers. I waited a little bit to see if this was something that required me to get adjusted to or if it was temporary, but as I went to... Read more »
It's hard to say from what you described as to whether you have a solid WC case. The best thing to do is to report your experience to Costco and ask to be seen by a company authorized doctor. You have to get treatment through Costco, although there are exceptions. A lot depends upon the job...Read more »
Worker’s compensation docotrs are very bias and they do return you to work even though they shouldn’t. In their final report they give you low percentage of disability and little need for future treatment. The law allows you to be evaluated by a neutral doctor to see what your true disability...Read more »
I have been harassed by my immediate supervisor for 4 years, I have been to management, Human Resources, union and have even filed an EEO case to no avail. I finally broke and went to a doctor who diagnosed me with severe depression and anxiety and stated I should have no contact with this... Read more »
All WCAB trials now are by telephone. Your witness MUST have access to a telephone!!! You will have to get the Judge's hearing line plus the access code and train your witness how to phone in and enter the code when the voice tells him to enter the code. OR bring your witness to your...Read more »
My dad's company recently held a meeting and forced all their employees to attend. No one in the room was wearing a mask or practiced social distancing, and the company have been negligent since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in their regard for the safety of their employees. They are a... Read more »
Thank you for posting your question here. The issue you present is going to be common I suspect, and from my perspective as a workers' compensation (WC) attorney (I do not practice in any of the other three areas mentioned in the post) I think it is going to be difficult to qualify for...Read more »

In California, you are considered to be employed at will unless you have an agreement to the contrary about that status with your employer. The employer of an at will employee has the absolute right to change the terms and conditions of employment, including job title and duties, at any time and...Read more »
settlement was not started though initial papers were filed with amended form with spouse signature to start settlement. Would the wife receive the settlement? Children were adults at time of accident and non dependent.
Your question is not clear, on any level. In Workers' Compensation (WC) generally, time stops at the moment of injury. That may not have anything to do with your question. If the person dies BEFORE the case is tried or settled, the WC claim becomes part of his estate. If the person then...Read more »
And I dug up dirt in one of her rental houses backyard. The original agreement was to dig up and put back the dirt for some pipes for $500. She didn’t pay us anything the day we dug it up. My then coworker was unprofessional and harassed her with phone calls to get some form of payment. We went... Read more »
If one applies for short term disability (casdi) and marks it as NOT being related to a workers comp issue, does that automatically preclude a later finding that the injury was due to (at least in some part or exacerbated by) working conditions, or is that avenue closed?
The avenue is not closed, but gets big bumps. The first thing a defense attorney for the employer is going to produce is your SDI application for the court and say that you have no standing to file a WC case because the injury was not work related, as supported by your SDI application, which I...Read more »
All that is required is good cause. You file a petition with the presiding judge where the case is venued asking for it to be reassigned to another location. Therein you provide a statement on why the change is necessary. Absent objection from defendants, you should not have a problem.

You should be timely reimbursed for round trip to mileage to all doctors that are approved by the w/c insurance company. This is not a "do-it-yourself" project- I strongly recommend that you immediately contact an Iowa attorney who handles workers' compensation claims for claimants...Read more »
