Workers’ compensation also known as workers’ comp can help give your employees the benefits they
need if they suffer a work related injury or illness
Works comp can you protect both businesses and the employees by covering:
Missed wages if an injured or ill worker needs time off while they recover
Medical expenses to treat injured or ill employee
Vocational rehabilitation if employee need ongoing care to help them get back to work
Death benefits, like funeral costs if an employee passes away due to a work related incident
It is important to remember that each state is in charge of their own workers’ compensation program. That means can be different depending on the location of the business you either own or work for.
A work-related injury is one that has occurred while employee was doing something on behalf of employer. Most injuries that are classified as work-related occur at the workplace, but also may occur in company-owned property such as a delivery vehicle.
