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.
