All Work And No Pay: The Massachusetts Overtime Statute And Its Agricultural Exemption, Emily Jordan 2022 Boston College Law School

All Work And No Pay: The Massachusetts Overtime Statute And Its Agricultural Exemption, Emily Jordan

Boston College Law Review

At the federal and state level, overtime statutes often contain agricultural exemptions. These exemptions do not require farm owners to pay statutorily mandated overtime compensation to farmworkers who work more than the prescribed workweek. In 1960, the Massachusetts legislature enacted its overtime statute, chapter 151, section 1A of the Massachusetts General Laws, containing an agricultural exemption, as part of a larger remedial response to the Fair Labor Standards Act. In 2019, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in Arias-Villano v. Chang & Sons Enterprises, Inc. limited the agricultural exemption to only those farmworkers working in harvesting, but not those working in post-harvesting ...

One-Shotters Or Have-Nots Should Come Out Ahead In The District Of Columbia’S Private Sector Workers’ Compensation System, But Do They?, Melissa Lin Jones 2021 Pepperdine University

One-Shotters Or Have-Nots Should Come Out Ahead In The District Of Columbia’S Private Sector Workers’ Compensation System, But Do They?, Melissa Lin Jones

Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary

In recognition of the humanitarian purpose of the District of Columbia Workers’ Compensation Act of 1979, D.C. Code as amended, §32-1501 et seq. and the legislative policy favoring awards even in arguable cases, a claimant is entitled to a presumption of compensability (“Presumption”) when applying for workers’ compensation benefits. By establishing a causal connection between the injured worker’s disability and a work-related event, the Presumption enables a claimant to establish entitlement to benefits more easily; however, an analysis of decisions issued by the Compensation Review Board from 2005 – 2019 reveals the Presumption frequently is misapplied. Moreover, contrary to ...


Why Proving A Work-Related, Psychological Injury Claim Stresses You Out, Melissa Lin Jones 2021 Pepperdine University

Why Proving A Work-Related, Psychological Injury Claim Stresses You Out, Melissa Lin Jones

Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary

In recognition of the humanitarian purpose of the District of Columbia Workers’ Compensation Act of 1979, D.C.

By establishing a causal connection between the injured worker’s disability and a work-related event, the Presumption enables a claimant to establish entitlement to benefits more easily; however, misapplication of the Presumption makes it more difficult for claimants to prove work-related psychological injuries because they must satisfy additional requirements (including ...

However, knowledge of certain characteristics of the injured such as age can be critical information.

Medical Volunteers During Pandemics, Disasters, And Other Emergencies: Management Best Practices, John I. Winn, Seth Chatfield, Kevin H. Govern

Seattle Journal of Technology, Environmental & Innovation Law

How best to utilize volunteers[1] during medical emergencies is an essential part of hospital compliance planning. Onboarding recruited and spontaneous volunteers during crisis situations require careful consideration of multiple legal issues. Volunteer planning becomes more complex if volunteers move across state lines because applicable tort immunity statutes,[2] compensation limits,[3]and workers compensation regimes vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another. Effective planning for volunteers requires these and other issues to be addressed well in advance of actual emergencies. Although predicting the scope or severity of any future crisis is impossible, the provided checklist of management best practices ...
