We Know the Facts… Do You?
- Men and women are working longer hours and producing more for their employers than ever before.
- Over the past five years, U.S. companies have continued to report gains in the overall productivity of their workers, despite layoffs, downsizing, plant closings and hiring freezes.
- Company management may sometimes overlook, or deliberately ignore health, safety and environmental rules.
- Longer hours and more pressure to satisfy the requirements of a job may lead to more stress on the job and long-term health consequences for the employee.
- U.S. companies are determined to control health care costs. Some companies use nurse-case managers who go with the injured worker to the doctor’s office and report back to the insurance company on what tests the doctor ordered, what treatment was prescribed by the doctor, its cost, how fast the injured worker is recovering and when the treatment can be terminated. In some cases, the quality and care provided to the injured worker may not be the best available under all of the circumstances.
- Many jobs today involve rapid and repetitive physical effort of a continuous nature throughout the workday. Over time, the cumulative effect on a worker’s hands, knees and spine can be considerable, and may lead to constant joint pain. Companies have been slow to recognize and admit compensation benefits for some of these occupational injuries.
- Injured workers are sometimes returned to work before their injuries are fully healed. In some cases, employers are expected to follow the doctor’s recommendations for light duty work. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they put the still injured employee to the test: either do a job your doctor says you shouldn’t do, or go home and not get paid.
- Employers are required by law to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance for their employees. But some employers are not insured, and when an employee is injured and the employer isn’t insured payment of medical bills and temporary disability benefits may be delayed, or not paid at all, unless you have a very good workers comp attorney on your side.
- Temporary Disability Benefits are weekly checks that are paid in place of wages. An injured worker can receive less in temporary disability benefits than he or she is legally entitled to if the insurance company doesn’t count the amount of overtime regularly worked by the employee before the accident
- New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law has procedures for how and when a claim is reported, and other requirements that have to be satisfied in order for an injured employee to collect workers’ compensation benefits.
- In all cases, the Burden of Proof is on the injured worker to prove his or her right to collect all of the compensation benefits that the law allows.
