Some Answered Questions
It is common after any type of injury to “wait it out” to determine if reporting the injury or seeking medical treatment is truly necessary. You may have slipped on wet floors or have a cut on your arm caused by improperly stored tools and believe that your injuries are relatively minor. Regardless of the nature of your injury, you must immediately notify your employer and seek medical care. This report will ensure that the nature of your injuries is documented from the outset, preventing problems and delays with your benefits.
California provides five fundamental workers’ compensation benefits. If you sustain a work-related injury or illness, your employer will pay for your medical care. If you are unable to perform your job while recovering from your injuries, you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits; those who do not recover completely will be eligible for permanent disability benefits. Supplemental job displacement benefits are vouchers that can be used to pay for retraining or skill enhancements if you are unable to return to your previous position. Lastly, spouses, children, and other dependents will be eligible for death benefits if the injury results in the demise of their loved one.
Employers in California are required to either purchase a workers’ compensation insurance policy from an authorized insurer or become self-insured. If you work in a position that rarely results in injuries, you may not be aware that your employer provides workers’ compensation. If you are curious about who provides your employer’s coverage, you can visit the California Workers’ Compensation Coverage website or the Department of Industrial Relations’ Self Insurance Plans website.
Employers are responsible for workers’ compensation costs, which are an inherent part of running a business. An employer cannot require you to contribute to their workers’ compensation insurance premium or deduct funds from your paycheck.
