What Is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
Workers’ compensation insurance is a type of no-fault, mandatory insurance that most employers are legally required to carry in the state. If a worker is injured while performing a work-related duty, workers’ compensation insurance is designed to provide monetary benefits for the worker regardless of fault. In exchange for no-fault benefits to the worker, employers enjoy immunity from liability, which means that an injured worker cannot sue their employer following a workplace accident, with the exception of very limited and special circumstances.
