If you are injured on the job, it is important that you get medical treatment immediately. The State of Massachusetts has Laws that all Companies must follow when an employee is injured. Make sure you are protected and receive the benefits to which you’re entitled.
You must make a report to the Company as soon as you are able. You also need to contact a Steward and/or Committee person. Companies are not always looking out for the best interest of the employee. Your Steward/Committee will always be looking out for you.
