What is Workers' Compensation?
Workers' Compensation law is governed by statutes in every state. Specific laws vary with each jurisdiction, but key features are consistent. An employee is automatically entitled to receive benefits when he or she suffers an occupational disease or accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.
Such benefits may include cash or wage-loss benefits, medical and career rehabilitation benefits, and in the case of accidental death of an employee, benefits to the dependents.
So if you have an employee, by California law you must have Workers' Compensation coverage for them. Workers' Compensation is very complex so give us a call, we are experts at it!
