Mental health factors affect women's work injury rates

Both employers and employees in Connecticut should know about a new study that suggests a link between mental health factors and an increase in women's work injury rates. Though the authors of the study admit that further research will be necessary to determine why this link exists in the first place, the results are noteworthy nonetheless.

Trucking industry seeks revision of hours of service regulations

Sharing a roadway with excessively tired tractor-trailer drivers can be a frightening thought for many Connecticut drivers. Because of the weight and mass of large trucks and buses, accidents involving these vehicles can be deadly or cause serious personal injuries. Despite the risks to roadway safety posed by drowsy drivers piloting massive trucks, the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is seeking to make changes to truck drivers' regulations for hours of work in order to make them more flexible.

Collision avoidance systems shown to prevent car crashes

Many Connecticut drivers are aware that driving can be a dangerous activity, especially as drowsy and distracted drivers are found on the roadways. However, a study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that collision avoidance systems like lane departure warning systems and blind spot alerts can save lives.

Spousal support could be affected by tax law changes

From property division to spousal support, financial issues have been some of the most significant factors for Connecticut couples going through a divorce. Alimony payments are already a contested issue in many divorces, leading to lengthy negotiations and even court battles. Spousal support issues could become even more complex, however, following the adoption of changes to the U.S. tax code in Dec. 2017.
