Compensation For Abused Foreign Domestic Workers: A Problem Of Enforcement, Benjamin Joshua Ong

Research Collection School Of Law

81818app手机版下载In Tay Wee Kiat v Public Prosecutor [2018] 5 SLR 438; [2019] 5 SLR 1033, two offenders who had abused a foreign domestic worker had been ordered to pay her compensation, on pain of a default term of imprisonment. When they failed to pay, the Prosecution applied for the compensation order to be enforced by way of attachment of the offenders’ property or garnishment of debts due to the offenders (“garnishment/attachment orders”). The High Court refused to make garnishment/attachment orders on the grounds that (a) the Prosecution had applied for such orders belatedly; and (b) such orders would ...

The Conservative Challenge To Caring For Compensated Caregivers, Peggie R. Smith

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

As more households seek home care workers to provide care for elderly and disabled family members, conservative attacks on workers’ unionization efforts threaten to destabilize the industry. This article discusses the supply and demand concerns within the industry, and considers the conservative attack on home care workers. It concludes by exploring the proposed federal domestic workers bill of rights and recommends proactive measures for states to help fortify the industry.


Say “No” To Discrimination, “Yes” To Accommodation: Why States Should Prohibit Discrimination Of Workers Who Use Cannabis For Medical Purposes, Anne Marie Lofaso, Lakyn D. Cecil 2020 Seattle University School of Law 81818app手机版下载

Say “No” To Discrimination, “Yes” To Accommodation: Why States Should Prohibit Discrimination Of Workers Who Use Cannabis For Medical Purposes, Anne Marie Lofaso, Lakyn D. Cecil

Seattle University Law Review

81818app手机版下载This Article addresses the question of how the law should treat medical cannabis in the employment context. Using Colorado as a primary example, we argue that states such as Colorado should amend their constitutions and legislate to provide employment protections for employees who are registered medical cannabis cardholders or registered caregivers.

81818app手机版下载Part I briefly traces the legal regulation of cannabis from an unregulated medicine known as cannabis to a highly regulated illicit substance known as marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act. Our travail through this history reveals, unsurprisingly, an increasing demonization of cannabis throughout the twentieth century. That socio-legal demonization ...

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

81818app手机版下载The court determined that the Nevada Industrial Insurance Act (NIIA) extends workers’ compensation protections to traveling employees while they are on work trips. The court held that traveling employee cases will use a categorical approach, where workers’ compensation is extended to traveling employees for injuries sustained during activity that can be considered an employment risk or a neutral risk which passes the increased risk test, but not to activities which are considered a personal risk. Activities considered a personal risk fall under the “distinct departure” exception, which requires that no compensation be given for injuries sustained during “personally motivated activities ...

Rescuing The Rescuer: Reforming How Florida’S Workers’ Compensation Law Treats Mental Injury Of First Responders, Travis J. Foels

Florida Law Review

The 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida was the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since the September 11 attacks in 2001. With a final death toll of forty-nine people, and fifty-three others wounded, the attack sent shockwaves throughout the city, state, and nation. People sent condolences to the families of those affected, prayers for those taken, and praise to first responders and health care professionals for their hard work and service. What many fail to consider, however, is the lasting effect such a horrific and traumatic event can have on the first responders whose job it is ...


The Federalism Challenges Of Protecting Medical Privacy In Workers' Compensation, Ani B. Satz 2019 Emory University 81818app手机版下载

The Federalism Challenges Of Protecting Medical Privacy In Workers' Compensation, Ani B. Satz

Indiana Law Journal

81818app手机版下载Under current law, injured workers face a Hobson’s choice: They may file for workers’ compensation or maintain their medical privacy. The reason for this is that § 164.512(l) of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s Privacy Rule (HPR) is widely misinterpreted by courts and legislatures as a wholesale waiver of privacy protections for injured workers. Section 164.512(l) excludes workers’ compensation from federal privacy protections that may frustrate the efficient administration of workers’ compensation claims. As the history and intent behind the HPR indicate, § 164.512(l) is premised on the assumption that states will ...

Ethnic Studies As Antisubordination Education: A Critical Race Theory Approach To Employment Discrimination Remedies, Theanne Liu 2019 Washington University School of Law, George Warren Brown School of Social Work 81818app手机版下载

Ethnic Studies As Antisubordination Education: A Critical Race Theory Approach To Employment Discrimination Remedies, Theanne Liu

Washington University Jurisprudence Review

81818app手机版下载This Note will use a critical race theory lens to argue that most trainings on equal employment opportunity (“EEO”), diversity, or implicit bias operate as a restrictive remedy to Title VII race discrimination violations, and that incorporating an ethnic studies framework into these trainings can further an expansive view of antidiscrimination law. A restrictive view of antidiscrimination law treats discrimination as an individual instead of structural or societal wrong and looks to addressing future acts of discrimination instead of redressing past and present injustices. An expansive view of antidiscrimination law sees its objective as eradicating conditions of racial subordination. Ethnic ...


Using The Anglo-American Respondeat Superior Principle To Assign Responsibility For Worker Statutory Benefits And Protections, Michael C. Harper 2019 Boston University School of Law

Using The Anglo-American Respondeat Superior Principle To Assign Responsibility For Worker Statutory Benefits And Protections, Michael C. Harper

Washington University Global Studies Law Review

When viewed flexibly, not to find doctrinal rules, but rather to find insight from judges’ collective judgment on social values, the common law may have particular value for modern policy makers. For instance, a common law insight could set policy makers in both the United States (U.S.) and the United Kingdom (U.K.) on a promising path for defining when workers are to be protected and benefitted by employment statutes. That insight reflects the underlying rationale for the common law that made relevant the initial distinction between employees and independent contractors - the common law of vicarious liability through respondeat ...
