Understanding Workers' Compensation in San Bernardino
Fortunately for employees in San Bernardino, California has some of the strictest workers’ compensation laws in the nation and they are very favorable to employees. Employers with just one or more employees are required to carry adequate workers’ compensation insurance in the event someone gets hurt on the job. You are entitled to medical expense reimbursement, as well as partial wage reimbursement. If you have been injured and work, reported your injury to your supervisor, and are not receiving benefits, your employer is likely in violation of the California Labor Code. We can help.
