Preventing dangerous machinery accidents in the workplace

If you work with machinery each day as part of your job in Kentucky, chances are you have received some type of training to give you eligibility to operate the equipment safely and in conjunction with company protocols. If you are in a supervisory position over a group who needs machinery to complete their assigned tasks, it is imperative that you encourage safety first to reduce unnecessary accidents. At Fowler Bell, we understand the inherent risks of working around heavy machinery.

Violent child custody encounter leaves woman dead, ex in custody

When a couple seeking a divorce in Kentucky have had children together, they will need to reach a settlement in regards to child custody arrangements. Often, both parties are required to compromise to reach a solution that is in the best interest of their children, but beneficial to each other as well. Unfortunately, there are times when couples are unable to resolve their disagreements amicably which can put the well-being and safety of their children in danger. 

Do you have to carry workers' compensation coverage?

Like all employers in Lexington, you no doubt want what is best for your employees. Ultimately, that may be staying in a position to be able to provide them with the salaries they use to support themselves. Depending on the size and nature of your business, accomplishing that may mean forgoing certain operational expenses such as workers' compensation coverage. Yet what happens if and when one of your employees is hurt on the job? They may come to you saying that you are required by law to carry workers' compensation coverage. Are they right? 

When is litigation a better choice than mediation?

If your marriage was contentious, there is no reason to believe that your divorce will be anything different. Nevertheless, you may have heard good things about the process of mediation, and you may wonder if it is something that would work for you and your spouse. After all, it would be nice to arrive at an arrangement that is pleasant and agreeable rather than battling over every issue.

Can you save your business despite divorcing your partner?

Having your spouse as your business partner in Kentucky may seem like the ultimate arrangement until you are faced with the very real possibility of divorce. If you and your spouse have reached the point where maintaining a relationship is causing angst, emotional trauma and costly stress, you may have considered turning to divorce as the best solution to your problems. However, if you are in business with your soon-to-be ex, it is imperative that you understand how to protect your company despite a failing marriage.
