Recently, Supervisor Mark Farrell introduced legislation to require a citywide Project Labor Agreement (PLA) for public work or improvement projects with projected costs over $1 million. This will help create higher wages for workers, better protections for workers, better opportunities for local residents, and work of enduring quality for San Francisco.
ASK THE EXPERT
This Month's Question
I always understood and expected that my employer had workers' compensation insurance. Unfortunately, after I hurt myself at work recently, I learned for the first time that my employer failed to pay its premiums and does not, in fact, have workers' compensation coverage. I haven't been paid in weeks. My medical bills are piling up. I don't know when, or even if, I'll be able to return to work. What can I do?
