Overview of Workers' Compensation Laws,
Benefits, and Procedures
What is Workers' Compensation?
If you are injured on the job you may be eligible for Workers'
Compensation benefits. When work-related accidents or injuries happen,
employers are required by state law to make sure an injured employee
is provided necessary protection and care.
Benefits may include payment for medical treatment, replacement
of lost wages during periods of disability, and compensation for
permanent disability. Injured employees should immediately report
any on-the-job injury to their supervisor and seek medical treatment.
All injuries must be reported, regardless of their severity. If
you have additional questions, call or e-mail the Benefits
Office at 803-777-6650.
