List of Worker’s Compensation Bureaus by State

Workers Compensation Definition

Workers compensation is defined as a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence. Every state has a Workers Compensation Division that is responsible for the administration of the state Workers’ Compensation Law to ensure proper payment of benefits to employees injured on the job and encourage safety in the work place. The main function of the Division is to ensure proper payment of compensation benefits along with necessary medical attention to employees injured on the job or their dependents in case of death. Information and services are also provided to claimants, employers, insurance companies, attorneys, judges, legislators, labor and management groups, government agencies and other parties.

The Division also administers the rules and regulations for individual self-insurers and group self-insurers. Major activities include compliance inspections, safety promotion, auditing and enforcing claims payments and settlements, compiling injury and cost statistics, mediating disputes, and establishing and regulating cost containment standards.

Because Workers Compensation are state programs, they are unique and specific to each and every state. They normally have their own individual bureau which is why I choose to generate a list of links and resources for all 50 states as well as the Virgin Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico.
