Pennsylvania Employment Workers' Comp. Postings For Workers - What Are They?
Posted Scott B. Cooper on Jul 09, 2013 in Workers' Compensation
Many people, including employers, forget that Pennsylvania employers are required to post certain notices in their worksites so employees have access to and information about applicable labor laws. Go to the link below to see the various postings and to download one, or more.
All notices must be posted in a conspicuous place so that they can be seen and read by employees. Failure to post notices can result in stiff penalties and possible fines. In addition to the notices listed below, all government agencies and private employers with government contracts over $25,000 are required to publish and post an anti-drug policy statement in accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1998.
Whether injuries were due to unavoidable circumstances, or to human error, workers’ compensation law in Pennsylvania guarantees coverage for most employees who suffer on-the-job injuries. Additionally, if a subcontractor’s negligent employee ends up hurting a worker from another company, a Pennsylvania workplace injury lawsuit may offer a broader scope for recovery than Pennsylvania workers’ compensation offers.
To follow up on the rights to compensation, though, an injured party needs trustworthy legal advice.
