New Workers Comp Service Kicks Off at Council 36

Injured on the Job and not sure where to turn? We're here for you!

In our union’s continuing efforts to meet the representational and servicing needs of our members, Council 36 is excited to announce a new service. Our members may now make an appointment with a leading Workers’ Comp law firm, or simply walk in during their office hours at our union hall in Los Angeles, to ask experts any questions you may have about injuries on the job or returning to work after such an injury.

Attorney Scott Ford, from the law firm of Ford & Wallach, will be hosting office hours every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 1:30-4pm, on the third floor at AFSCME District Council 36, 514 Shatto Place, Los Angeles 90020.  You are invited to come by anytime during these hours. You are also welcome to contact Scott Ford at Ford & Wallach at 213.380.3140, if you prefer to make an appointment in advance of the office hours or for another time.

While this free service to Council 36 members is new, AFSCME’s relationship with Ford & Wallach goes back many years. The firm has also long served AFSCME Local 3090 (LA City Clerical and Support Staff.

“Ford and Wallach have been a great asset for AFSCME Local 3090 members for over 20 years,” says Carmen Hayes-Walker, President of Local 3090. “They have maintained office hours in our office so our members are able to walk in or call their office at any point during their worker’s compensation process and get expert help all the way to a resolution in their cases with the City of Los Angeles.  Being an injured worker myself, Scott Ford has handled my case from the beginning, approximately 25 years ago.  With his help, I have been able to continue to work within my restrictions for the duration with almost no time off.  Ford and Wallach have the utmost respect in workers compensation court with the judges and other attorneys.  And to put the cherry on top…they are union members!”

Council 36 is confident that you will also find this service of great value, if you use it. Click on the PDF icon  here PDF iconflyer more details.
