For those who are out on workers comp, the easiest way to have job security is to file paperwork under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA provides injured workers with compensatory benefits for up to 12 weeks per year without risk of losing your job while you recover. Federal law requires all employers to comply with this. Even if state law allows companies to fire someone while on workers comp, federal laws carry more weight. The employer is required to at least try to find a position for someone after he or she returns from disability leave. The only way a company can deny the person a position is if they cannot afford to pay the person to work in any position for the company.
How Much Do Employers Pay for Workers Compensation Insurance
Worker Compensation Insurance is purchased by business owners to pay for any workers compensation claims that may occur due to on-the-job injuries or adverse conditions developed while working. This is generally a mandatory form of insurance designed to protect workers more than anything else.
