Most importantly, that uncertainty can lead you to start questioning if you are covered by the workers’ compensation should you have an accident at work.

People get arrested and have to spend one night in jail even for small incidents , such as traffic offenses. If you can’t get a hold of a friend or member of your family, and you have checked the local hospitals with no results, the local police and jails should be the next step in your search. And if you don’t want to call every police office in your area to find out if someone was incarcerated, there is an easier way to get this information. Thankfully, the internet ...
