Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) generally provide heightened protection for union employees hurt at a job site.
In New York State, when an employee is hurt at work a claim can be filed under the NY Worker Compensation Law.
In addition, when the injured employee is fortunate to be a union member, additional compensation can generally be found in the union’s Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).
CBAs frequently provide bodily injury relief including paid time off from work and payment for medical expenses.
As workplace injury medical expenses are generally not covered by the employee’s personal health insurance, it is very important to make correct arrangements for payment of medical bills through Workers Comp and any CBA.
Sometimes a Collective Bargaining Agreement is not exactly clear as to what benefits an employee should receive in any one particular case.
For example, disputes frequently arise over whether the employee’s injury is serious enough to trigger broad relief under the Collective Bargaining Agreement’s accident & injury claim guidelines.
