What Is the California Workers’ Compensation Law?
Under California’s Workers’ Compensation Act, those who are injured on the job may be entitled to benefits such as monetary compensation and medical treatment. If a person is deemed an eligible employee with a work-related illness or injury, their employer is responsible for covering a portion of their basic expenses while they are recovering.
Injured workers may be entitled to the following benefits:
- Medical care to aid in injury or illness recovery
- Rehabilitation care
- Temporary disability benefits
- Permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits
- Death benefits paid to the family of the deceased
Work-related injuries refer to injuries (such as slips, falls, or motor vehicle accidents) that occurred at the workplace or a job site, chronic conditions caused by work duties and/or environment, or injuries sustained on the way to a different location.
Who Pays For Workers' Compensation?
If you are an eligible employee who is faced with work-related injury or illness, your employer is the one responsible for paying your worker's compensation benefits.
In the state of California, the law states that employers must purchase a workers' compensation insurance policy from a licensed insurer. Otherwise, the employer but become self-insured. In both cases, your employer is the one responsible for monetary benefits.
What to Do If You Are Injured at Work
If you experience a work-related injury or illness, the workers’ compensation process can be overwhelming without the right support.
To ensure you are preserving your rights to the workers’ compensation benefits you are owed, you should:
- Report your injury or illness to your manager or supervisor immediately.
- Keep copies of everything that you fill out while reporting your injury or illness.
- Seek and obtain medical treatment right away (do not wait for your employer to provide medical assistance).
- Carefully explain to your doctor how you became injured or ill on the job. Their report can be beneficial to your case.
- Obtain legal representation to safeguard your rights and fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
