Compensation lawyer says no safety net for workers black lung case: No pension, no sick leave, no paid holidays, no rest

Compensation lawyer says no safety net for workers black lung case: No pension, no sick leave, no paid holidays, no rest The Ontario court will hear arguments Tuesday in a case that’s seen scores of workers whose work at construction sites left them with black lung infections spread to more than two dozen Ontario locations. The workers sued the company responsible for helping keep them and their families clean, alleging the workers paid nothing or received too little for treatment. Article Continued Below According to the union, workers suffered from an infection known as “black lung.” But only three of 15 cases involving the case workers’ union at the two Toronto construction sites have ever더킹 카지노 been tested, and only four of the nine workers’ cases have received compensation. The lone worker who did receive compensation, however, was awarded $10,000, though the union has declined to say what it is. Lawyers for the construction industry say they are trying to minimize the cost of any damages. The union has also sought a judge to impose strict conditions on workers being required to report illnesses to supervisors and the employer. “If there’s no requirement for doing that, we see no purpose for that as it creates unnecessary stress,” said union representative James Tootell. Workers have been complaining of being sick to death at the three Toronto locations, which include St. Clair East, the University of Toronto, and the newly opened St. Catharines plant, since 2007, a union official said. “Every time we would have a worker who would say something on their workdays and the company would respond: ‘Oh, there was no case, let’s find it out later.’ ” The union said it hired its own independent expert to look into whether the workers were indeed suffering from illness. But the study was completed with the help of the company and did not examine the health of the workers themselves. Article Cont천안안마inued Below But while the union wants the court to impose the strictest conditions on the cases, it wants the company to show that it has been forced by outside parties to keep paying for worker benefits. “As long as there’s no benefit system in place, people get sick and get worse,” said Toronto labor lawyer and former Supreme Court justice Charles Bevilacqua. “That’s why we have a law like this.” For decades, when a workpla오바마 카지노ce is involved in health problems, many workers are not required to report them. But the union said the Toronto plant — which employs close to 1,000 workers — would be unlikely to provide a written report with details.
