I work for a club in the San Fernando Valley and recently broke my ankle on the job. I am classified as 1099 but am actually a misclassified statutory employee and I think the the guy who owns the club and/or his insurance company is/are trying to cheat his way out of paying me worker's comp. and covering the cost of my pending operation.

HR/YANML filter: One of my assistants had an on-the-job injury today, and at the hosptial, they failed to give her the pee test drug screening that our company requires. She's concerned that they may use that as basis for claiming that she refused the test, and therefore will be on her own for the expense. I don't feel like this is the case, but I wanted someone with a more informed answer to help me reassure her. So, do they have the burden of proof if they claim she refused? How long after the event can they require it?

I have a friend here in New York who has a major personal injury case starting very soon dealing with his child. Involved is a major chain, and some serious plastic surgery. Is there a database to check out some of the lawyers who are in contact with my friend - about their history, wins / losses, etc?
