Who is Covered Under a Company's Workers' Compensation?

Working any job can come with different risks of injury. When this happens, you may want to file a workers' compensation claim.

Workers' compensation can help you support yourself and your family while recovering from your workplace injury. It can also help pay for medical bills.

Who Can File Under a Company's Workers' Compensation?

Anyone who is employed a company is eligible for benefits. This includes:

  • full time employees
  • part time employees
  • seasonal or temporary employees

As long as you are employed by a company and can prove you were injured while working there, then you may be able to receive compensation

Who Is Not Covered by a Company's Workers' Compensation?

If you are not employed by a company, but are doing independent work for the company and were injured while working at the company, then you will not qualify for their workers' compensation. Some examples include:

  • Electricians or plumbers working on the store

These jobs may be covered under their own employer's workers' compensation.
