Worker’s Compensation

 Having a job sometimes comes with big news. You get to go home and tell your waiting spouse that you got a big promotion, maybe you get to tell them that you got a raise, or are getting more hours, or are getting fired. We didn’t say it would always be good news. While good things happen to us, bad things also happen bad things like getting injured. If there is good news about that, it is most employers have programs to help you in the event of injury. The main program used is called Workers’ Comp.

   Workers’ Comp, or Workers’ Compensation, is a form of compensation paid by a company when a worker is injured doing their job. Every job has a danger of injury, even a cozy office job. You can slip on a wet floor or trip over something carelessly left in the way. Other jobs, of course, have higher chances of injury such as a busy kitchen or a lumber yard. Regardless of where you work, if you are injured on the job you may be due compensation. Since lawsuits take time, money and plenty of stress, workers’ comp may be there to help bypass all of that. The company pays for your injuries and you get to keep getting paid.
