Workers' Compensation is a system of benefits for people with job-related injuries or disease. Almost every worker in Illinois is covered by workers' compensation. Your employer is responsible for payment of workers' compensations benefits, either directly through a workers compensation insurance carrier or calims service company.
Failing to provide workers' comp benefits for employees can result in fines against the employer, and in the case of employee injury, the employer loses their workers' compensation protection and can be held liable in a third-party lawsuit.
