Workers’ Compensation Law
Workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect individuals that are injured on the job. These laws intend to reduce the need for litigation by providing employees that were hurt or disabled with monetary damage awards. Also, workers’ compensation statutes prescribe recovery for dependents of individuals that were killed because of work-related incidents. Some laws protect other employees and employers by limiting the amount of recovery and, in some instances, cutting off liability against fellow employees. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (“FECA”) is a federal statute that only provides workers’ compensation for federal employees, while state statutes cover all state employees and those that are not employed in a position that has a signicant impact on interstate commerce.
