Who is entitled to worker’s compensation benefits?

An employee may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits if they have an on-the-job injury or an illness. These benefits are provided at the employer’s expense. The injury or illness may result from a single incident or from repeated or prolonged exposure to activities or substances at work. All California employers are subject to state workers’ compensation laws with only a few exceptions. Not all claims occurring at the workplace are compensable.
