Travel Nursing and the Travel Nurse Pay Transparency Bill in Illinois

New Law: Travel Nurse Pay Transparency Bill Passes in Illinois

June is Homeowners Month, and in this article, we focus on Travel Nurses, who frequently have new short-term places to hang their hat. While some travelers rent short-term housing and have that included in their agency contracts, others live in travel trailers, recreational vehicles, and even boats. The travel nurse job is not for everyone, and it’s toughest on families, but for singles who want to see more of the country, being a travel nurse can be an exciting career option. Many traveling nurses work for and are paid by independent nurse recruiting agencies. The Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) has new disclosure and reporting requirements imposed on agencies. These agencies are regulated and new laws like the new Travel Nurse Pay Transparency Bill are intended to provide increased fairness and information among nurses and agencies.

Homeowner Liability: Protecting Your Family and Assets

Filing a lawsuit against a friend or neighbor seems like the worst thing someone can experience, especially when seeing that person again is inevitable. If a guest is injured at your home or on your property where you are legally responsible, an insurance claim can be made. Before making a claim with any insurance company, contact a personal injury attorney first. With your Chicago injury lawyer, discuss your personal liability and exposure, because personal liability is possible if the insurance does not pay a claim or the claim exceeds the policy limits. At the end of the day, neighbors understand that some insurers will pay claims without a problem and others seemingly need a lawsuit on file to get people paid appropriately, and that’s why you need a lawyer like Michael V. Favia.

Mandatory Masks, Vaccines, and Employment

Mandatory Masks, Vaccines, and Employment: Healthcare Workers and Legal Issues

While setting aside the emergency use-authorized vaccines, it is generally settled law that employees may be required to submit to certain types of vaccination protocols as a condition to employment. Where that is different in this case, is the settled law came through lawsuits involving FDA-approved drugs, not emergency use-authorized drugs. Why people in different forms of government and business are unsure of what to do, is likely because the law and enforceability of vaccine mandates are unclear because we have never approached the concept of mandating the use of emergency use products.
