Investopedia explains 'Workers' Compensation Coverage A'


Workers' compensation insurance is a significant expense for employers, and is legally mandated in nearly every state in the United States. Employers may pay more if the company has had a certain number of previous claims, or if its employees have certain occupations that are deemed dangerous.

Benefits of workers' compensation are generally awarded on a no-fault basis, as long as the employee is not under the influence of drugs, including alcohol. Employees are usually required to submit to a drug test following an on-the-job accident. Many workers' compensation incidents will provide partial reimbursement of lost wages, and survivor benefits in the event the worker is killed while on the job.
