Many employers provide long-term disability coverage for their workers as a benefit for working at the company. If you find yourself with an injury or health issue that prevents you from working for a significant amount of time, you will need to file a claim for long-term disability with your employer's insurance company.

TCE is so dangerous that its use was banned in food and cosmetic products, and the Environmental Protection Agency considered banning its use entirely.

- When somebody comes to the United States in the hope of receiving protection, they may apply for asylum. Asylum would allow this individual to stay in the country, often because it is not safe for them to return to their former country. These people are often refugees, perhaps escaping persecution based on religious belief, gender, or something else. Understanding any aspect of immigration law can be difficult, especially if you are trying to decipher laws you are unfamiliar with.
