Workers' compensation benefits are often difficult to secure

Many New York residents are likely somewhat familiar with the basic premise and purpose of the workers' compensation system. In general workers' compensation is funded by employers who are required to pay into the insurance fund which pays benefits to workers who are injured on the job. While the basic purpose of workers' compensation seems simple enough, the actual process of trying to obtain benefits is often anything but.

Injuries and deaths all too common among Latino and Hispanic construction workers

During 2014 alone, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that a total of 874 U.S. construction workers were killed in job-related accidents. Regular readers of this blog are likely familiar with the many and varied safety issues with which construction workers must contend on a daily basis. Among the most vulnerable of these workers are those who have immigrated to the U.S. and often speak little to no English.
