Basics: What is workers′ compensation insurance?

Workers' compensation is a state-mandated, "no-fault" insurance system that pays benefits to workers injured on the job to cover medical care, part of lost wages and permanent disability. In return, employers receive immunity from civil lawsuits by employees over such workplace injuries. Employers can meet their workers′ compensation obligation by purchasing insurance or by becoming a state-certified self-insurer.
