Employee Injuries & Accommodations
An employee has been injured on the job, now what? When an employee is injured in the workplace, most employers know they must report the incident to their workers’ compensation insurance carriers and the applicable state Department of Industrial Accidents/Department of Labor. But, frequently other employment laws arise simultaneously and are overlooked, such as the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our employment attorneys will discuss these employment law issues and explain how you can achieve compliance with your obligations under the applicable leave or accommodation statute and avoid litigation risks.
