Workers' compensation coverage, often referred to as workers' comp, is an insurance that pays employees who have been injured on the job. Benefits cover all medical costs related to the injury and disability benefits cover employees unable to return to work. Workers' comp also protects employers from lawsuits relating to workplace injuries and will typically eliminate the messy litigation between the employee and his/her employer should it arise. This coverage is state-run and almost universally required of businesses--only a few states do not require coverage and only a few types of companies (i.e., with five or fewer employees and in a few specified industries) are not required to have a policy in force.
