Workers' compensation insurance, commonly referred to as work comp insurance, helps employees injured on the job.  Work comp pays medical costs and lost wages when employees are injured at work. It  can include rehabilitation services and death benefits too.

 

Workers' compensation insurance is know as the "exclusive remedy" for work-related injuries.  Work comp is required (almost) everywhere in the United States.  And, in exchange for purchasing this insurance, employers receive protection from liability.  Employees can not file suit against their employer (except in extreme circumstances like intentionally injuring an employee), and, instead, must utilize the employer's work comp program.  The exclusive remedy.

Workers' Comp For Employees

Employers buy Workers Comp Insurance to pay for medical care and replace a portion of missing payroll wages when employees are unable to work due to an accident.

  • Medical bills

  • Lost wages

  • Disability Payments

  • Death Benefits

Workers' Comp For Employers

Accidents happen, but workers' comp helps give your business a safety net. In addition to helping cover medical bills and lost wages, the coverage may help with:

  • Vocational rehabilitation services to help get your employee back to work

  • Employee legal liability

  • Protects business owners by paying legal expenses if sued for a workplace injury.

The business owner, or employer, pays their insurance company premium to provide workers' compensation coverage for employees.

The cost of a policy is a complex "algorithm" detailed in this blog post.  Very simply, the foundation of pricing a work comp policy taking the insurance company's rate for your industry and multiplying that rate to your payroll (payroll is the "basis of premium" for work comp). 

When an employee is injured on the job she should seek immediate medical treatment.  And, as soon as practically possible, a supervisor should report the injury.  Once a medical provider has seen the patient, that provider will complete a report and send it to the employer's insurance company to be processed.
