Safety & Health

Light duty
Light duty refers to any temporary or permanent work that's physically or mentally less demanding than normal job duties. Companies oftentimes offer injured employees light duty jobs to encourage them to return to work or to compensate them for being injured on the job.
Violence liability
Unfortunately, in every workplace, there's always a potential for conflict that can lead to violence. Employers not only should do their best to prevent such conflicts from occurring, they're legally required to do so.
Occupational safety and health
The health and safety of employees has become a major concern in the workplace for many employers. Job-related injuries, sickness, or death not only costs companies' thousands of dollars in lost productivity, but they can cause grief, pain, and undue hardship to workers and their families.
Vocational rehabilitation
Employees who sustain work-related injuries or have disabilities that prevent them from working for a period of time are entitled to receive benefits outlined under the Worker's Compensation law and the federal Rehabilitation Act.
