Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation insurance is a no-fault insurance system. If an employee suffers an injury on the job, the employer is liable for the employee’s temporary disability benefits, medical expenses and possibly a permanent disa​bility award based on the long-term effects of the injury.
