Workers Compensation and Your Rights
Workers Compensation: One of the most frequently asked questions is what is workers compensation? Workers Compensation is a “no fault” insurance program that provides the following benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illness:
- Medical Benefits
- Temporary Total Benefits
- Permanent Partial Benefits
- Permanent Total Benefits
Unfortunately, injuries in the workplace happen more than we think. It is important to know what to do after you have suffered an injury at work. The first thing that needs to be done is, notify your employer. The notice may also be given to the supervisor on duty at the time, someone in the personnel office or anyone in authority at your place of business. If your injuries require medical treatment you should notify your employer as soon as possible.
