Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that provides benefits to employees who have been injured on the job. In exchange for these provisions, workers relinquish their right to sue their employer for negligence. Although workers’ compensation plans vary by region, most plans include provisions for weekly payments in place of wages, reimbursement of medical bills and related expenses, and compensation for dependents of workers killed during employment.
