Workers Compensation Laws are introduced to ensure that if an employee gets injured while at work, he/she will receive a compensation for replacing medical costs and lost wages. Each and every state has its own Workers Compensation Laws and they offer several benefits such as—
- Medical benefits that include travel cost including medication, hospital stays, etc.
- If the injured employee is not in a position to return to his original field work, he/she is assigned in a different field.
- If the injured employee becomes disabled, temporarily or permanently, he gets paid time off work.
