What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation, or workers’ comp, provides benefits to employees injured while performing work-related functions. Most states hold employers strictly liable for workplace injuries but bar employees from bringing tort lawsuits against employers. Negligence on behalf of an employer is not an element of a workers’ comp case. Employees need only demonstrate that they were injured on the job in order to receive benefits.
