Pages On: Employer Negligence

Whether it’s shortcutting health & safety, or putting profit before people, a company can be outrightly negligent if it doesn’t have its workers best interests at heart. If your employer fails to provide you with the tools and knowledge to perform your duties which puts you in harms way, or has questionable management practices that leave you injured, you’ll likely be able to claim employer negligence compensation.
