Federal Laws

There are several acts that allow employees an opportunity to receive compensation for injuries that occur in the workplace. However, there are distinctions as to who is eligible. Some industries and organizations have their own guidelines and insurance policies to cover Workers’ Compensation claims. A few of those with their own compensation protocols include the United States military, Merchant Marines, miners, and longshore/harbor workers.

State Laws

Every state allows for some type of compensation when a worker is injured on the job. In California, Title I of the California Code of Regulations offers a comprehensive plan for workers who live in the state and are employed there. There are specific limits for companies and others who work with the victim. Workers’ Compensation insurance is mandatory and all employers must carry it.
