What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. Workers are entitled to compensation for injuries they suffer related to their job regardless of whether they were at fault or the employer was at fault in causing the injuries. Employers must purchase workers’ compensation insurance coverage. It is compulsory. Because employers have provided this insurance to workers, employers are, by law, immune from lawsuits by employees if the workers’ compensation insurance is in effect.

(If the employers do not have workers’ compensation insurance or have let their insurance lapse, they can be sued by injured employees.)
