WC OverviewWorkers’ compensation is “no-fault”. It doesn’t matter if an employee caused their pwn injury by being careless. If they are otherwise eligible, they are entitled to benefits unless they intentionally hurt themselves, they were intoxicated, or they committed fraud. Most employees need to be covered under workers’ compensation laws, but there are a few exceptions.
- Sole proprietorships
- Limited liability companies
- Corporations with no more than three corporate officers and no other employees
- Medical benefits
- Disability benefits
