Employee rights in the event of workplace injuries in California

One of the primary concerns most workers have is the potential hardship their families would have to suffer if they should be injured in an on-the-job accident. How will they pay medical bills and cope with personal financial obligations if they can't return to work for some time? Gaining knowledge about their employee rights may provide some peace of mind. Employers in California must provide workers' compensation insurance to cover all work-related injuries or illnesses.

Disability benefits can come as both private and public aid

While every person understands the eventuality of his or her own death, not everyone expects a disability. This may be the reason why more people have life insurance policies than disability insurance policies. In California and across the United States, there is a public option for benefits if a person becomes permanently disabled. The program that provides these disability benefits is called Social Security Disability Insurance. 

Disability benefits for victims of military sexual trauma

A military service person can expect to experience difficulties during his or her time of service. Post-traumatic stress disorder is one such effect, and it is often caused by combat-related events. Another type of trauma commonly experienced by military vets is known as military sexual trauma. Sufferers of military sexual trauma are eligible to receive disability benefits if their ability to work is affected by the occurrences. The psychiatric illness is widespread, and affects individuals from California and the entire United States.
