Workers' Compensation

What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' Compensation benefits are designed to provide you with the medical treatment needed to help you recover from your injury or illness caused by work; payment of temporary disability benefits if you lose wages because your injury prevents you from doing your usual job while recovering; payment of permanent disability if you don’t recover completely; and for certain types of injury, supplemental job displacement vouchers to pay for re-training should you be unable to return to work for the same employer.  More information is available through the California Department of Industrial Relations (Calif. Division of Workers' Compensation) at:  I Was Injured At Work.
