Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that provides benefits to workers who have been injured or killed on the job. Workers’ compensation is regulated by the state and federal governments, and the specific details vary from state to state.
The law requires employers to have workers’ compensation insurance, which means that your employer must have paid into this fund. If you are injured at work, you will be able to receive benefits from this insurance. If you one is killed on the job, their family will be able to receive benefits from this fund.
Workers’ compensation covers medical expenses, lost wages, and funeral expenses. It also covers any rehabilitation or vocational rehabilitation services needed after an injury or death.
