Workers’ Compensation

California employees work hard every day. Unfortunately, there are times when employees are injured or die on the job. In addition, workplace accidents, repetitive behaviors, unsafe conditions, and more, can cause employees to suffer an injury that prevents them from doing their job. California workers’ compensation is a type of benefits system that can provide medical care to injured employees. The system also provides wage replacement when an employee is unable to work or unable to perform the same level of duties as before the accident. These benefits are available to workers regardless of fault. Furthermore, if an employee dies as a result of the workplace injury, surviving family members may be eligible to receive benefits.It is unlawful for employers in California to terminate an employee because they have filed a workers’ compensation claim.
