Protecting the employer as well as the employee
It's always a difficult time when an employee gets hurt on the job, but it's a hard time for employers, too. Workers compensation insurance exists in every state to protect employers and employees from the ramifications of injury and illness on the job. Though employees are educated when they are hired, often both employers and employees are not aware of their rights and responsibilities.
What is Workers Compensation?
Workers compensation, or “workman's comp” as it's also known, is insurance provided by your employer, which ensures – by law – that you get paid a portion of your wages that you would otherwise lose to injury or illness contracted on the job. Also, workers compensation laws ensure that your medical bills will be paid. Your employer is required by law to have the forms needed for you to file a claim.
