(ROMANDO CRUZ) Hi, hello, good afternoon; my name is Romando Cruz and I'm going to present my story. In the late afternoon, at 5 o'clock, I was pulling out my cart with a cabinet on it. The cabinet accidentally fell on my foot. I noticed that the cabinet was not in good shape. I didn't report to my supervisor because I knew it's not a big injury. I rested for two days and came back to work. The next morning my supervisor went to my station and asked me what had happened during the time of the accident. I explained to him everything so he knew all about it. And he gave the cell phone number to me before he went in a meeting and told me that I had to call him back after my shift ends. I was worrying about being terminated or dismissed from my job. My wife knew all about it and she decides to call my supervisor back. My supervisor told her that I had to provide a doctor's note and a medical checkup. The next day I brought my doctor's note and presented it to my supervisor. Instead of worrying I am happy of what had happened. WCB or, Workers Compensation Board, paid my two working days that I didn't work and reimbursed medical expenses. Now I know how WCB works.
