What is more dangerous about some professions over others?

A USA Today investigation last year revealed that 5,147 workers died accidentally on the job in 2017. One of the leading causes of those deaths is accidental drug overdoses. This isn't the only reason for worker deaths though.

Are most workplace back injuries preventable?

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data shows that an estimated 1 million individuals, or 20% of all injured or ill workers, hurt their backs while working each year. These injuries cause these employees to miss nearly just as many days from work as someone who suffers from a common cold would. Many of these injuries are completely preventable.

Who does California's whistleblower laws cover and when?

There are both federal and state laws on the books that protect whistleblowers when they come forward and report impropriety. California Labor Code Sections 1102.5 and 1106 are the two primary statutes that detail who's protected by state whistleblower laws and when that's the case.

Can you sue employers for not making reasonable accommodations?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals from being discriminated against based on their past, current or perceived association with a disability. This federal law applies to almost any employer that has 15 or more employees. Any company that violates the ADA may be subject to civil penalties including fines.
