Workers’ Compensation
 Workers’ Compensation is a system which requires your employer
to pay your medical costs and part of your lost wages if you are
injured on the job.
 Workers’ Compensation also mandates the payment of benefits to
dependents in the case of work related death.
 “No-fault” coverage
