Proposed CA law could harm injured workers

The California legislature is currently considering a bill that would effectively prohibit professional athletes from receiving the benefits of the state's workers' compensation scheme. Currently, California is one of only states that allows injured workers to file claims based on cumulative injuries. There is no time limit on workers' compensation claims, so professional baseball, football, hockey or other sports players have the ability to file in California for injuries that built up over decades. The proposed legislation, Assembly Bill 1309, would impose a time limit on filing for claims that would effectively prohibit these players from getting compensated for their long-term or cumulative injuries.

SeaWorld hit with second violation for unsafe work environment

App to keep workers cool this summer

It is hoped this will help keep workers safe and stop wage loss from heat related illness. This may be of interest to Los Angeles readers due to extreme summer weather conditions in the area.

Asbestos and toxins can harm tornado volunteers

The attention of the nation has been focused on the injury and death caused by the recent tornados in several cities. However, there may be personal injury cases that result from the aftereffects of these tornados that have not even occurred yet. California and other states are sending hundreds of volunteers to Oklahoma to assist in cleanup efforts, and these volunteers may be exposed to dangerous toxins from rubble caused by the destruction of buildings.
