Travel situations covered under workers' compensation

Most employers are required to have some form of workers' compensation coverage that pays for employees' financial losses if they become injured on the job. However, just because an injury does not happen on a job site or in an office does not mean it is not covered. Minnesota workers may be relieved to know that workers' compensation regulations still apply in travel situations that are closely related to their job duties.

Some women get paid less in workers' compensation

Minnesotans may be aware that women are often paid less than males for doing the same work. However, they may be surprised to learn that some women are also paid less in workers' compensation due to their gender. This problem is the focus of a class-action lawsuit that has been recently filed in California.

Workplace falls can be costly

Minnesota workers may be interested to know falls are considered one of the most common workplace injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only transportation-related accidents lead to more workplace deaths. Falls cost employers more than $15 billion in workers' compensation claims nationwide every year.

Welding fumes can cause long-term health problems

According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, welders in Minnesota and across the United States face serious health hazards on the job. The agency says both fusion and pressure welding produce harmful metal fumes and gas byproducts that can cause short- and long-term health problems if workers are not properly protected.
