What is Workers’ Compensation?

//What is Workers’ Compensation?

The New Jersey Legislature created our Workers Compensation system to provide to you benefits if you are injured or contract an occupational disease at work. The benefits include medical care, temporary disability payments, and compensation for a resulting permanent disability. Should the employee die, benefits would be paid to the employee’s family.  Benefits can be paid voluntarily or it may require filing a cliam with the Workers’ Compensation Courts  for relief.
