Workers' Compensation Basics

Employees who are injured on the job, or even offsite if it happened in the course of employment, are often eligible to collect workers' compensation benefits while they recuperate. There are, however, specific guidelines for determining whether an injury or illness is truly work-related, and certain procedures must be followed in order to file a claim. This section includes resources to help you successfully claim workers' compensation benefits. You’ll find articles explaining work-related injuries, benefits, and your rights as an injured worker. In addition, you’ll learn under what circumstances it’s appropriate to sue your employer for an injury rather than claim worker’s compensation benefits.
