Ohhhh....My aching back!

Getting out of bed in the morning is not easy for many people. The snooze button is often a comforting friend -- until the next blast of the alarm. However, for workers suffering from back pain, getting out of bed is only the first obstacle of the day. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) estimates that 31 million people suffer from pain in the lower back at any given moment. Moreover, lower back problems are the leading cause of disability in the world.

Temp workers in Minnesota deserve a safe work environment

Temporary workers in Minnesota are those hired by a temporary employment agency before being assigned to clients to address their special labor needs or projects. Both the agency that hires the employee and the employer where the employee performs work are responsible for providing worker's compensation coverage for that individual. The two employers can choose to reach an agreement in which one is solely responsible for providing insurance that adequately covers the employee. In cases where both employers have insurance on the employee, the employer where the person was performing work is the first insurance policy that is looked at for benefits payments.
