Workers’ Compensation

If you were hurt or became ill as a result of your work, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including payments for medical bills and some lost wages. As long as you’re eligible, you may receive compensation regardless of who was at fault for the injury. In exchange for this protection, you lose the right to file a lawsuit against your employer for damages (except in a few situations when you can sue outside of the workers’ comp system).

Typically, there are four basic eligibility requirements for workers’ comp benefits:

  • You must be an employee.
  • Your employer must carry workers’ comp insurance.
  • You must have a work-related injury or illness.
  • You must meet your state’s deadlines for reporting the injury and filing a workers’ comp claim.

There are special rules for some categories of employees, including domestic workers, agricultural and farm workers, casual or seasonal workers, and workers placed with an employer by temp agencies.
