In medicine, they call treating the entire person "holistic." We believe in a holistic approach to workers' rights and injuries. In all cases, we coordinate a package of benefits for our clients to ensure you receive everything you are entitled to under the law. For example, an injured worker may be entitled to workers' compensation and Social Security Disability benefits. We also handle remedies for wrongs in the workplace, such as discrimination, retaliation, harassment and wrongful termination.
A large number of immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries come to Iowa to find work in our meat-packing plants. Unfortunately, many immigrants are injured on the job through unsafe work conditions. Employers often use scare tactics to keep immigrants from pursuing compensation for their work injuries. For example, some employers may threaten to send the worker home or retaliate against a worker if he or she files a workers' compensation claim. We have handled numerous cases of injuries to immigrant workers, and we work to ensure that workers' compensation laws are applied fairly to protect all workers who suffer workplace injuries.
