Every year, thousands of employees are injured on the job. Workers’ Compensation provides payment for any injury or illness that is related to your employment. Workers’ Compensation, often known as Workers’ Comp, provides payment for medical expenses, supplements or replaces wages for time missed from work.
In certain cases, an injured employee can obtain job retraining together with payments for the loss of future earning capacity. If you are an employee, you are covered under Workers’ Compensation regardless of how long you have been employed; you are covered on your first day of work.
