What Are Workers’ Compensation Laws?
Workers' compensation is employer-paid insurance that benefits employees who are injured or become ill due to their job. It is a no-fault system, which means that employees are entitled to benefits regardless of who was at fault for the injury or illness.
Some common types of injuries that are covered by workers' compensation include:
- Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Slip and fall injuries
- Back injuries
- Illnesses caused by exposure to toxic substances
- Occupational diseases, such as mesothelioma
Workers' compensation laws are regulations that require employers to provide benefits to employees who are injured or become ill due to their job. These laws are designed to protect workers and ensure they receive medical care and compensation for lost wages while recovering. They also benefit the families of workers who are killed on the job.
