Florida is hot, humid and extremely dangerous for the workers who have to be outside in the elements. Even though the local area is known for popular attractions and is a tourist destination, that doesn't mean that entertainers and workers can stand to be in the heat any longer than others.

Workers' compensation is something that workers should be entitled to if they are harmed while on the job. Whether they're traveling for work, fall in an office or are hurt on a construction site, the point of workers' compensation is to make sure they get the financial support and medical care they need at no cost to them. Additionally, those who are off work for several days may qualify for a portion of their lost wages, so that they don't have to worry about the time they missed on the job.
