Workers' Compensation Laws


Workers' Compensation Laws

Workers' compensation (aka workers' comp or workmans comp) is a form of accident insurance paid by employers. No payroll deductions are taken out of employees' salaries for this insurance. If you're injured on the job or acquire a work-related illness, workers' comp will pay your medical expenses, and if you can't work, it will also cover wage-loss compensation until you are able to return to work.Workers comp training

Benefits are usually paid by a private insurance company or state-run workers' comp fund. It also provides benefits to dependents if a person dies as a result of a job-related injury.

What Are My Workers Compensations Requirements?

If you are injured on the job while employed by a private company, you should contact your state workers' compensation board. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) does not handle workers' comp claims relating to private employers.

Are All Employees Covered Under Workers Compensations Law?

Not all employees are covered by state workers' comp insurance or workmans comp laws. Some employees are covered by other compensation laws administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Specifically, DOL's Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers four major disability compensation programs that provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits to federal workers (or their dependents) who are injured at work or acquire an occupational disease.

The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program, the Federal Employees' Compensation Program, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Program and the Black Lung Benefits Program serve the specific employee groups who are covered under relevant laws and regulations by helping to pay some of the financial burden resulting from a workplace injury.
