MFY Launches New Program for Worker Safety and Health

Responding to the lack of legal assistance for low-income and immigrant workers injured on the job, MFY Legal Services is launching a new project on Workplace Safety and Health as part of its Workplace Justice Project. The project will provide advice, counsel and representation to workers who are injured on the job or who face unsafe or unhealthy conditions. The project will offer assistance on Workers’ Compensation claims, medical leave and disability accommodations, disability discrimination, and reporting unsafe conditions. The project also provides training and is partnering with Mt. Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health.
