The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation system is designed to protect both employees and employers. Employees may be entitled to receive coverage for medical treatment and compensation for lost wages associated with the work-related injury and/or disease. Employers provide for the cost of workers’ compensation insurance while being protected from direct lawsuits by employees.
The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act covers most full-time, part-time and seasonal workers. Most businesses, regardless of size, are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Non-profit corporations and unincorporated business entities are included in the list of businesses that must comply with the Act.
Volunteers and independent contractors may not be covered by the state workers’ compensation law because they are not considered employees, but they still have options for compensation for injuries while working in those roles.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at Williamson, Friedberg & Jones are experienced in helping employees in a wide range of industries navigate Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system.
