Workers' Compensation Claims - OSHA Violations
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the department responsible for creating and enforcing safety protocols to protect workers in the United States. Every employee has the right to work in an environment that is safe and follows the safety protocols. More often than not, these requirements are ignored and lead to an employee being injured. The workers’ compensation process is already tough, but it’s even more difficult if you believe your employer has violated OSHA requirements. If you work for the federal government and you would like to file a complaint, you will report it to the federal OSHA department. However, if you are an employee of state or local government in California or you are considered a private employee who works in California, you are covered by Cal/OSHA and will report complaints to them. Our Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Attorneys will tell you everything you need to know and guide you through the process of filing a complaint with OSHA.
