Best job for 50 year old?
My father recently quit his job as a cook because he got injured at the restaurant and they did not offer workers como there.
He does not have a degree but has small businesses in yard work and house painting. He has a bad right leg and is quite old but he’s a hard worker. He doesn’t want to quit working but also does not want to return as a cook. Any ideas or recommendations?

Quite old at 50 ? I worked until I was 69 and I'm a female. He could be self employed as a painter/decorator , or a driving job, plenty of opportunities if he thinks about it.

In this brave new world of internet shopping could your dad be a courier/driver? Or a store cashier, office/computer work. How about being a school caretaker?

Workers Compensation is not optional for employers.
They have to provide it.
The employer would rather that he didn't file a claim because it will raise their rates but he should.
EDIT:https://www.twc.texas.gov/news/efte/workers_compen... a "non-subscriber", i.e., going "bare" or without coverage, leaves an employer open to personal injury lawsuits from employees who are injured on the job - the damages and attorney's fees are almost unlimited - in addition, certain defenses available in most personal injury lawsuits, such as assumption of the risk, contributory negligence, "last clear chance", and co-worker negligence, are not available to a non-subscriber in a job injury case.
