Qualifying for Workers’ Compensation
The means of compensation for your on-the-job injuries will depend on the circumstances of your accident. Most employers have a form of work injury insurance known as workers’ compensation. For most employees, this will be the exclusive way to recoup losses. You will need to forfeit your right to file a civil lawsuit against your employer in exchange for workers’ compensation benefits.
There are, however, some exceptions to the exclusive remedy provision, including:
- Wrongful termination claims
- Sexual harassment claims
- Employment discrimination claims
Most of the time, the employee’s fault in the accident does not affect his or her ability to claim workers’ compensation.
An employee may not receive benefits if:
- Their injuries were intentional or self-inflicted
- They were intoxicated while injured at work
- They were violating a company safety policy
