The Dangers That Can Come With Public Service

Public service encompasses a diverse range of jobs. Each type carries its own set of safety risks and concerns. Examples of hazards that public employees can face include:

Whatever hazards you have encountered, understanding your workers’ comp rights is essential when you suffer injuries when working in public service.

Guiding You Through A Unique Legal Landscape

Public workers are often subject to different workers’ compensation laws than workers in the private sector. Kevin’s extensive experience will heavily equip him to help you navigate this unique legal terrain. He will clarify which laws apply to you, explain your rights and build strategies aimed at maximizing the benefits you receive.

How Does Florida Workers’ Comp Law Treat The Public Sector?

In Florida, the public sector has an even more expansive workers’ comp coverage requirement than the private sector. All state and local governments are required to carry workers’ comp insurance, no matter the size of their workforce.

Does Tennessee Workers’ Comp Law Take This Same Approach?

No, Tennessee goes a very different route. It exempts state and local governments from the requirement to carry workers’ compensation. What does this mean if you’re a public employee in Tennessee? It means that your access to workers’ comp benefits depends on whether your employer voluntarily chooses to provide coverage.

The Special Rules For Federal Employees

In both Tennessee and Florida, state workers’ comp laws do not apply to federal employees. Rather, such workers are covered by a different set of rules under federal workers’ compensation laws.

The Impacts Of Union Membership

Many public employees are union members. This can afford them additional protections beyond workers’ comp laws. This includes those stemming from collective bargaining agreements. Kevin can help you identify, understand and take full advantage of such additional protections.
