Might this be the reason your back hurts?

You've been working in the same Nebraska factory for over a decade. You enjoy your work; you even like your boss. However, lately, your back pain makes it impossible to perform your assembly line duties. In fact, you've called work a few times in the past several months when even the ibuprofen you took wasn't able to alleviate the pain. Several people mentioned the possibility that you might be suffering a repetitive stress injury.

What are an employer's responsibilities under Nebraskan law?

Under the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Law, your employer is required to carry workers' compensation insurance. Workers' compensation insurance helps provide you with benefits in the event that you're hurt on the job. Your employer should have information on workers' compensation posted in your place of employment where it is easy to access.
