Employer Penalty

Employers are required by law to provide safe working conditions for their employees. For instance, an employer must provide proper safety equipment and safeguards to prevent workplace injuries. Employers may not knowingly permit any workplace condition that is not safe.

Safety equipment may include head gear, safety netting, harnesses and railings. Failure to supply such equipment can result in serious, life-threatening injuries to workers. This is especially true on hazardous work sites such as construction sites, oil fields and mines.

Workers’ compensation benefits are to be increased by 15 percent if an employer willfully failed to comply with the law, orders of the Utah Labor Commission, or the employer’s own written workplace safety policies and procedures.

Have You Suffered A Workplace Injury?

When a workplace injury does occur, the injured worker is entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Employers, however, do not always pay claims freely.

I aggressively pursue the facts in work injury cases and work to determine if employer fault or negligence of any kind contributed to the accident. I can help you understand your rights and guide you through the workers’ compensation process.
