Fire fighting veteran says workplace illness result of bullying

Fire fighters in a town outside of California lamented the recent departure of a long-time colleague. They say the 25-year veteran knew everything about their town and was a talented asset to their team who will be sorely missed. The veteran sergeant is said to have left the force due to a workplace illness that involved his mental health.

Lawsuit claims California's worker's compensation system biased against women

The purpose of the workers' compensation system is to provide medical care and (partial or full) income to injured workers. In the event a worker suffers a fatality, workers' compensation provides survivor benefits to the family members of the worker. To receive workers' compensation benefits, the worker must waive his or her right to sue the employer under common law. However, a new lawsuit brought against California's Division of Workers' Compensation and several other state departments and officials claims that the system discriminates against women.
