Starbucks workers sign petition over employee rights

Starbucks is considering its options to improve worker safety after learning of almost 4,000 signatures on an online petition. Those who signed the petition claim that their employee rights to safe work environments are violated because of exposure to used needles that are discarded in bathrooms. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, workplaces in San Diego and other cities nationwide must be free from recognized safety hazards.

Employee rights to workers' comp not linked to OSHA citations

Workers nationwide, including San Diego, California, are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages -- and more in some cases -- if they suffered work-related injuries. These employee rights to benefits are based on a no-fault system, meaning that they can file benefits claims even if they were at fault. A recent case in another state demonstrates that even if a judge throws out a fine issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, it will not jeopardize the injured worker's rights to compensation.
