When Nick asked her, “Pardon my question, but do you have pain in your shoulders?” She replied with a look of pained astonishment, “How do…

Employer Responsibilities in California

Employer Responsibilities in California

California businesses are required to meet the health and safety requirements of both OSHA, and the California Ergonomics Standard.
