Workers’ compensation insurance, also referred to as “workers comp”, covers medical costs and a portion of lost wages for an employee who becomes injured or ill on the job. It also protects companies from being sued by employees for workplace conditions that can cause an injury or illness.
Workers’ comp insurance usually covers:
medical care from the injury or illness
costs for retraining
compensation for any permanent injuries
benefits to survivors of workers who are killed on the job
Remember, workers’ compensation coverage is different in every state. Always check your policy to see that it works for your company, especially if your company is in multiple states.
