Frequently Asked Questions about Workers’ Compensation
Q: What is workers’ compensation?
A: To take the uncertainty out of the circumstances following a work-related injury or industrial illness, the workers’ compensation system provides a reliable procedure for resolving resulting problems. Broadly, if the injury occurs in the course of employment, regardless of whether the employer was negligent or otherwise at fault, the worker receives benefits that may include wage replacement, medical coverage or other assistance. The employee is not allowed to sue the employer for the injury and the employer must carry insurance or otherwise legally provide a means to cover workers’ compensation expenses. Most employers are subject to the workers’ compensation system, but some states exempt smaller employers, and most federal workers and certain national industries are covered instead by comparable federal programs.
Q: What types of injuries or diseases are covered?
A: Virtually all types of work-related physical injury and industrial illness are covered by workers’ compensation. Very commonly covered conditions include repetitive-stress injuries (RSIs) like carpal-tunnel syndrome (CTS), back injuries, traumatic injuries, wounds or bodily reactions to substances. Many states also cover mental or emotional harm, but the standards for psychological coverage vary greatly from state to state. Pre-existing conditions are generally not covered unless aggravated at work.
