Workers’ compensation can cover the cost of rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy, to help employees regain their physical abilities and return to work.
Permanent Disability Benefits
In cases where an employee sustains a permanent disability due to a work-related incident, workers’ compensation may provide long-term disability benefits to support them.
As an employer, it’s important to fulfill certain responsibilities regarding workers’ compensation insurance:
Purchase and maintain a workers’ compensation policy that complies with local laws.
Notify employees about their rights and responsibilities under the policy.
Report work-related injuries and illnesses to your insurance carrier promptly.
Cooperate with the claims process and investigations related to workers’ compensation claims.
Ensure that the workplace is safe and that safety protocols are in place to minimize the risk of accidents.
