SS TIP OF THE DAY - DEPRESSION

Folks can be accepted for Depression under SS guidelines, but it's very difficult with this condition alone. Signs of severe depression can include: unexplained loss or gain of weight, insomnia, and suicidal attempts. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about SS Disability, worker's comp, or employment law. 

THINGS TO DO IF INJURED ON THE JOB

Workers comp tip of the day -- if you are injured on the job, the three most important things you should do are to file a claim with the Industrial Commission (602-542-4661), report the injury in writing to your employer - an email will work, and see a doctor right away. You would be surprised how many claims are denied because folks didn't follow through on these steps. Please let us know if you have any questions about WC, Social Security, or Employment Law. 

CONSTRUCTIVE DISCHARGE

Employment Law Tip of the Day - You don't have to be fired to have a potential claim for wrongful termination against your employer. Constructive discharge occurs when working conditions are so bad that a "reasonable person" would feel compelled to resign. Constructive discharge is actually covered in the Arizona Revised Statutes at ARS 23-1502. Please let us know if you have any questions about this, or any other employment law, worker's comp, or Social Security Disability matters.

THE EQUAL PAY ACT

Employment Law tip of the Day - Equal Pay Act - this Federal law prohibits employers from paying workers of one sex at a wage rate different from that paid workers of the opposite sex for equal work. It applies only to sex discrimination. The exceptions to the rule are wage differentials per a seniority system, merit system, systems that measure earnings by quantity/quality of production, or for any other reason unrelated to sex. We do handle employment law cases. Please call our office for a consultation: 800-229-3880 

WORKERS' COMP TIP OF THE DAY

Workers Comp tip of the day - did you know if your WC case was previously closed with a permanent disability, and you were able to return to work at the time, but now aren't able to earn what you were earning at the date of your injury, you may be entitled to further compensation. Please call our office for a free consultation on this -- 800-229-3880 . Visit Fendonlaw
