California may soon be giving workers’ comp rate a bump

Although most employers in the Los Angeles area do their best to keep their workplaces safe, accidents and injuries still happen. When they do, employees are generally entitled to workers’ compensation for their injuries and medical expenses. However, workers’ compensation laws are often contested by employers and insurance companies.

California practical joke victim gets workers compensation

Some people like to play practical jokes on co-workers in the workplace. When harmless pranks are inflicted at the office or in the service industry, they can lighten the mood and give everyone a big laugh. However, well-intentioned fun has the possibility of backfiring; the joke can go too far and cause a workplace injury. In such case, the joke is no longer funny. Instead, the victim may have to receive medical care, take time off to heal, and file a workers’ compensation claim to make up for lost wages.
