Not all employers are LeGumes.
But it's DAMN important to know your rights.
I actually had to butt into a conversation between two employees at a hardware store in Lakewood earlier this year. One of them actually thought he couldn't file an L&I claim on an injury he got at work because he was "not a full time worker".
Bull-honkey. If you're hurt at work, file a claim. It's your right AND you pay for that in your taxes (look under "industrial insurance" on your paycheck).
