As a business owner, you have a legal responsibility to keep your employees safe while at work. Employers have a legal responsibility to their employees to make the workplace safe. However, accidents happen even when every reasonable safety measure has been taken. Workers Compensation provides payments to injured workers, without regard to who was at fault in the accident, for time lost from work and for medical and rehabilitation services.
It protects your business from lawsuits and provides employees with compensation for on-the-job injuries. Workers Compensation helps control the financial risks for employers since many states limit the amount an injured employee can recover from an employer.
By law, most employers are required to provide coverage for lost wages and medical bills incurred as a result of on-the-job accidents or illnesses. It also provides death benefits to surviving spouses and dependents.
