Workers' comp: How your social media posts can be used as evidence against you

If you were injured at work and you are filing a workers' compensation claim, you should be aware that more insurance investigators are using social networking as an investigative tool. According to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, more insurance companies are going online to make sure that claims are valid.

Workplace safety: You can get hurt in the office, too

Most people think about workplace accidents happening at high-risk jobs, such as construction, law enforcement or manufacturing, but many office workers get injured each year, too. While these injuries may not be life threatening, they can be life changing. Even if your employer has workers' compensation insurance, you should still be cautious and follow safety procedures to prevent injuries.

Undocumented workers have access to workers' comp benefits

According to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA), hiring undocumented workers is illegal when employers know their employee's residential status. Although the law also requires employers to fire employees upon determining that employees are not authorized to work in the U.S., employers are still responsible for extending workers' compensation benefits to undocumented workers who are injured on the job.
