Worker's Compensation, how it works

Wisconsin Employers that meet specific requirements are required to carry Worker's Compensation insurance unless they qualify for Self-Insured status. Employers receive the assurance they will not be sued for damages, medical care and lost wages if their employees get injured while working.

If employees get hurt on the job, employers can direct them to their insurance company's worker's compensation system for quality medical and prompt payment of benefits and an early return to work.
