What is worker’s compensation?

Worker’s compensation is a program designed to help provide payment to workers injured on the job. Most employers are required to participate in if they do business in California. If you are injured while performing your job duties, you should notify your employer immediately so that a claim can be opened. Some injuries that occur on the job may be the fault of a third party other than the employer. Separately, sometimes employers retaliate against their own employees for filing for worker’s compensation, which is illegal. For these reasons, it is important that any employee injured on the job have the opportunity to consult with an experienced attorney to discuss their legal options and protect their rights.
