California Workers' Compensation Benefits

Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that provides compensation for workers who have been injured as a result of their jobs. All employers in California are required to carry workers' compensation insurance, and they are required to pay benefits to injured employees. In addition to workplace accidents, illnesses that occur as a result of working are also eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
