Law Office of Joseph Richards, P.C. - Legal Notices - California Workers' Compensation Claims
In California, when you get hurt at work, lots of legal notices come through the mail. Notice of "this", notice of "that". There are even notices you're supposed to get on your first day of work, even before you step foot on a job site. Even before you get hurt. There are even notices that are supposed to be posted on the wall for everyone to see. Most of the time, these notices are either ignored or are difficult to understand.
Notices of Temporary Disability and Salary Continuation including Notice of Temporary Disability / Salary Continuation Start (also Resume, Delay, Denial)
Notices for Resumption, Change, & Termination including Notice of Resumed Benefit Payment; Notice of Change in Rate, Amount, or Payment Schedule;

Notice of Delay of Workers' Compensation Benefits.
