Workers’ Compensation

Janitorial Workers and Custodians

Sadly, due to the nature of the job often being after-hours or behind the scenes, janitorial workers and custodians can sometimes face poor and laborious work conditions. These hard-working employees can be exposed to hazardous materials and unsafe work environments that can lend themselves to a variety of accidents and injuries.

Filing a Claim as a Janitorial Worker or Custodian
