Injured CVS Worker? Start Here for Compensation
It is estimated that 1 in 2 Americans is taking some form of prescription medication long-term. What this means is that you may at one time have had to head over to CVS in order to get your prescription filled or refilled. CVS refers to a chain of pharmaceutical and beauty dispensing stores that are found in just about every town in America. Originally started by two brothers and a Scandinavian investor, the chain of store has grown exponentially in order to become one of the largest employers of Americans, with an estimated 300,000 individuals working for CVS in one capacity or the other. CVS has a number of employment opportunities available such as store clerks, dispensing experts, pharmacists, cashiers, inventory representatives, security, cleaners and so on. OSHA, a worker health and safety organization has laid out specific safety protocol that all employers must follow in order to keep their workers safe. As a CVS employee, you may be exposed to a number of different risks, from biological, to chemical, to ergonomic and so much more; however, it is assumed that your supervisor or manager should take reasonable care to protect you from such risks. If you got injured at a CVS store, you may be eligible for compensation, and we’re here to help you with that.
