The Basics of Workers' Compensation in Massachusetts
In Massachusetts, the workers’ compensation laws are in place to make sure that workers are covered and protected by insurance in case they are injured on the job. The Workers’ Compensation Act in Massachusetts requires employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for all their employees. The insurance coverage offers certain benefits to an injured employee.
The WC benefits include medical benefits, which are available to pay any reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to the employee’s injury.
Other very important benefits from workers’ compensation are the disability benefits. These benefits are designed to replace a portion of the wages an injured employee is unable to earn due to their work injury.
