The workers’ compensation insurance application vetted by Zurich American Insurance Company seemed straightforward enough to its examiners. Based on the information supplied by Tennessee-based Sunshine Enterprise (a seller/distributor of Chinese construction and industrial equipment to American companies), Zurich duly issued a policy providing for coverage.
Workers’ compensation claims and processes relevant to employees’ on-the-job injuries in Louisiana or elsewhere across the United States are complex and sometimes fraught with legal peril for employers.
The legal realm of workers’ compensation is both singular and complex, as well as involving more than an occasional dispute. We prominently note that on our website at the proven Louisiana insurance defense law firm of Caffery, Oubre, Campbell & Garrison. We note therein that the workers’ comp universe encompasses a “complicated maze of deadlines and regulations imposed by state and federal laws.”
“Half the story.”
Employers in virtually all industries across Louisiana and nationally understandably fret over medical costs incurred by their workers for various reasons.
The short and immediate answer to the above-posed blog headline query must certainly be this: Of course not.
Many Louisiana businesses have younger workers on their staff. Sometimes, companies have such employees perform job duties that require driving. Issues regarding driving inexperience and immaturity can sometimes raise concerns regarding how responsibly such workers will act behind the wheel.
How tired workers are is no inconsequential thing. Employee drowsiness can have some serious consequences.
If you are an employer that keeps up with trends, you might be among those in Louisiana that offer some employees the opportunity to work from home or other remote site. Telecommuting is possible today because modern technology allows for it. By putting it to work, employers can provide the work-life flexibility and attract and retain better employee candidates.
