Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance coverage that employers must provide to their
employees. The cost of workers’ compensation insurance is paid entirely by the employer and
may not be deducted from an employee’s wages.

compensation benefits as provided by law. WRITTEN NOTICE MUST BE GIVEN TO YOUR
EMPLOYER WITHIN 4 WORKING DAYS OF THE ACCIDENT. If you don’t report your
injury or occupational disease promptly your benefits may be reduced.
If you are unable to work as the result of a work-related injury or occupational disease,
