Does lack of sick leave lead to more workplace injuries?

Research suggests that workplace safety would be improved if paid sick leave were more available to employees. The study was done by the federal Centers for Disease Control. It involved 38,000 workers and covered the years 2005 to 2008.

Construction site falls: federal rules and employer obligations

Injuries from workplace falls are a frequent type of workers' compensation claim. This is particularly true on construction sites, where scaffolding collapses and ladder falls are far too common. These falls can not only cause injuries; they can be deadly.

Back injury to Redskins' punter leads to Maryland work comp ruling

In our September 27 post, we wrote about the workers' compensation dispute concerning a former punter for the Washington Redskins. The Redskins' insurance company took the position that the injured punter should have filed his claim in Virginia, where the team has its practice facility. The company made this argument even though the Redskins are incorporated in Maryland and the injury occurred there.

Does workers' comp apply away from the workplace?

The boundaries between home and work are not always clear. For instance, the "Snowmegeddon" blizzard in the Northeast a couple of years ago ended up encouraging more and more employers to offer flexible work schedules that include telecommuting. You may be in your own home, but you are working - and that means your employer may be required to pay workers' compensation if you get hurt.
