Workers' Compensation

Insurance that pays for an employee's medical care in the event that he/she is injured at work. Workers' comp may also provide for lost wages and compensate for disability or reduced earning potential. In exchange for receiving workers' comp, the employee surrenders the right to sue the employer for negligence. Workers' comp is mandatory in many jurisdictions and employee paychecks are reduced by the amount of the premium.
