What Is Workers’ Compensation and Why Do You Need It?
Simply put, workers compensation provides wage replacement and benefits to employees who are injured in the course of employment. In exchange, workers agree to mandatory relinquishment of their rights to sue their employer for a work-related accident. This is important because it frees companies of the tremendous financial burden associated with on-the-job risks while being able to provide workers with just compensation for any unexpected workplace injury. Essentially, both parties are safeguarded. Although most sates have some form of mandated workers’ compensation in place, the exact provisions of the measure vary by jurisdiction.
