Employee Right - Injuries, Illness
If an employee has been injured at work because of a hazardous condition at the workplace, the hazard should be removed as soon as possible before it injures someone else. The employee injured at the workplace has the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits.
Due to worker’s comp, the employee injured at work receives appropriate medical care and the paying of medical bills. He/she can also receive the lost wages benefit for on-the-job injury, and, if necessary, retraining and rehabilitation, so as to be able to return to the workforce. When workers are killed on the job, members of the workers' families are ordinarily eligible for benefits. If serious injury has been caused to the employee because of a violation of the state workplace safety law, the employee may seek additional damages. The additional damages will be more than the amount he/she is eligible to receive from a worker’s comp claim.
Only those employees are eligible for worker’s compensation benefits whose injury or illness has “arisen out of and in the course of employment.” It means that:
- The injury or illness was caused during the work time.
- The employee was in a place where is he/she was supposed to be, or at least reasonably was been expected to have been.
- The employee was injured or became ill In the line of duty, while doing his/her job.
- The incident occurred under circumstances where there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the job and the injury.
