Unsafe work sites
Injured In The Workplace?
Employers should take responsibility for their employees. If a worker suffers an injury on the job, the employer ought to bear the costs of medical care, time off and related expenses. Both state and federal laws support this. In Tennessee, employers must maintain reasonably safe work sites and equipment to diminish the likelihood of injuries. Likewise, they must carry workers’ compensation insurance to help pay the costs of recovery if an employee suffers an injury.
Yet employers often disregard the law. They challenge workers’ injury claims. They may even threaten to fire or demote workers who intend to pursue compensation. This is illegal and should not be tolerated.
