You’ve been hurt on the job in the state of New York. You’ve heard from others that you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. But what does that mean? How does the workers’ compensation system work? Who pays for it and where does it come from?

What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is essentially a form of insurance that almost every employer in New York is required to carry. It’s designed to provide coverage when a worker is injured because of the fault of an employer or a co-worker. The benefits you are eligible for when you file for workers’ compensation are designed to cover two specific types of losses: 1) any medical expenses you incur because of the injury; and 2) a portion of your lost wages because of the injury.

As a general rule, workers’ compensation benefits are only available if you are unable to work and are terminated when you return to your job. However, if you have permanent injuries, but can still return to work, you may be entitled to a cash settlement when your workers’ compensation benefits end.

One of the most important things to understand is that workers’ compensation is basically a “no fault” system. That means that you don’t have to show that your employer or a co-worker was negligent—you only have to show that you were injured while working.

Who Pays for Workers’ Compensation?

The premiums for your workers’ compensation insurance are paid by your employer—they are not deducted from your pay.
