Employers and workers need to know about workers' compensation

Workers' compensation provides a variety of benefits to Pennsylvania workers who have been injured on the job. Workers' compensation benefits are recoverable regardless of whether the employer, the employee or a third party were at fault in the accident. Workers' compensation law also places certain obligations on employers to keep workplaces safe and carry the right type of insurance.

Both employers and employees need information about their rights and obligations under the workers' compensation system in the event of an accident. Employees need information about all of the documentation they need to provide to collect workers' compensation benefits. They also need to understand how and when they need to give notice to the employer and the deadlines they need to meet in order to apply for benefits.

Employers need to recognize when they have fulfilled their duty to an employee and when they need to provide additional compensation. They need sound advice about workers' compensation insurance and whether or not they are required to carry it. With the right help, employers can avoid costly litigation.
