What is worker’s compensation?

If an employee gets hurt on the job, the employer is required to pay for the medical care and help replace the lost wages resulting from your work-related injury or illness. The State of California (State) workers’ compensation laws provide a no-fault system and workers’ compensation benefits are provided at no cost to the employee.
