Frequently Asked Questions
"Am I Covered By Workman’s Compensation?"
Answer: You could be. Here are the typical eligibility requirements for Worker’s Compensation benefits:
- The person or company you are working for must carry worker’s compensation insurance or be legally required to do so….(In California this is a statutory mandate.)
- You must be an employee (not an independent contractor) of that person or company.
- Your injury or illness must be work related.
Eligible employees receive compensation for lost wages and will have related medical expenses paid or reimbursed.
