Lifetime medical benefits issues in Illinois workers' comp cases

Many things contribute to the complexity of workers' compensation matters. One is how big of a range there are of different workplace injuries workers can suffer on the job. What types of workers' compensation issues arise for a hurt worker can heavily depend on the specifics of their injury. 

Funeral directors be warned, you could develop serious diseases

If you had to guess an occupation in which a worker has a high chance of being exposed to formaldehyde, your first answer would probably be funeral director. You wouldn't be wrong either. Formaldehyde has been used for decades in the embalming process, exposing funeral directors to a chemical that wasn't considered a carcinogen until 1987 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

On-demand economy: irregular work schedules and the family

Life in the twenty-first century, like each new era, does not look like that of its predecessors. One could argue that patience is a characteristic rarely used to describe our current society. Instant gratification is no longer a wish, want or desire; it is a reality. In fact, many people today expect goods and services to be delivered without delay.

The on-demand economy: Can 'share and share alike' protect workers?

Back in July we posted about employee classification and the fine line between contract worker and employee. It is a subject we and everyone else involved with workers' compensation and other employment benefits will come back to often.
