Managing Workers Compensation Claims Process
This process will help you to meet your legal obligations to manage Workers Compensation Claims.
Workers' compensation is a form of insurance payment to employees if they are injured or become sick during the course of work. Workers' compensation can include payments to cover an employee's wages, medical and like expenses and rehabilitation.
Each state regulates the payment of workers' compensation and requires that an employer must take out workers' compensation insurance to cover themselves and their employees.
The amount of workers' compensation an individual employee receives is regulated by the state or territory legislation the employee is employed.
Upon a workers' compensation claim being accepted by their insurance company, an employer is also required to ensure they provide return to work duties to enable their employee to successfully return to work. Each state has varying return to work obligations.
