Education Law Can Help Your Child
It is back-to-school time. For the most part, we have to give credit to schools and educational institutions for doing a great job. Sometimes, however, your student can be in a situation where their education is jeopardized.
Your child may need special education services but could be denied access to them by the county or school. Your child may be assigned to a different district, separating them from their peers, coaches and teachers. A school may decide to suspend or expel your child. If your child is in a special education program and their tutor is arbitrarily changed, it can negatively affect your child's development. If not properly addressed, all these changes can have negative consequences for you and your child.
Most employers are diligent about the boundary between work and pay. Some employers, however, do not honor California Labor laws and do not pay workers for the time or activity they should be paid for.
While The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) protects workers from being deprived of fair payment by their employers for their time, wage and hour violations still take place in high tech industries, food industry jobs, construction jobs and hotel jobs.
Most employers try to maintain safety at the workplace, but even under the best of circumstances, work injuries do happen. Sometimes work injuries are caused by accidents, while other time they are a direct result of negligence. Either way, having a workers' compensation lawyer to help you with the system is important.
Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides compensation to employees who experience job-related injuries and/or illnesses. Regardless of who's at fault, an injured employee should get workers' compensation benefits under workers' compensation law. In exchange for these benefits, an employee does not have the right to sue the employer in court.
