Workers' Compensation By State

Workers' Compensation By State

Workers' compensation is a system set up to help workers and employers when someone is injured on the job or becomes ill as a result of their employment.

Employers carry workers' compensation insurance, which provides money for medical care and compensation while workers recover from their injuries. Employees who are hurt on the job are eligible for workers' compensation benefits no matter who was at fault for their injuries. And employers are protected from being sued by their injured employees.

Each state has its own workers' compensation system, and the federal government does, as well. The process for applying for benefits varies by state, and workers in different states receive different levels of coverage and compensation. And there may be rules about where injured workers can seek medical treatment.

To find out how workers' compensation operates in your state and to apply for benefits, select from the states listed below.
