Workers' Compensation

Did you know that workers' compensation laws were originally passed for the protection of the employer? It's true. Employers were being sued by employees for unsafe working conditions and co-employees were suing each other for negligence. The money damages were too great for employers so they sought protection from their lawmakers.

As a result, workers' compensation was created with the idea that everyone would recover some amount for injuries in the workplace but the amount of recovery would be controlled. Thus, workers' compensation laws put in place caps on employer liability and provided injured workers immediate - yet reduced - benefits and eliminated the need to prove negligence or fault.
