What is employer negligence?
Regardless of vocation, employers are legally required to provide a workplace that is as safe as possible. While in some cases it may be difficult to ensure a 100% safe work environment, it is still the responsibility of the employer to take every necessary precaution. For example, it is the employer’s responsibility to provide adequate safety equipment, to provide proper training and safety training for employees, and to uphold safety codes. If an employer fails to do any of these things, he or she may be considered “negligent.”
Employer negligence can result in employee injury or death. If you have been the victim of employer negligence, you may be eligible for increased workers’ compensation benefits.
