What You Should Know About the Workers’ Compensation Act
The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides that all employers, including non-profit organizations, must issue workers’ compensation insurance for all employees. This includes full-time employees, part-time employees, and seasonal employees (but not contractors). Timing plays a big part in filing a claim. Illnesses that occur from exposure to certain materials such as asbestos or benzenes are covered under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Such exposures can lead to lifetime disability or even death. Under the Workers’ Compensation Act, wage-loss benefits and medical benefits may be covered. Death benefits are usually paid to the dependent survivors if the death occurred from a work-related injury or illness.
