The Workers’ Disability Compensation Act.
Within the State of Michigan, almost all employers are subject to the Workers’ Disability Compensation Act. The Workers’ Disability Compensation Act is a law that provides compensation to employees that may have been injured at work, while at the same time protecting the employer’s liability.
The compensation received by the employee is used for rehabilitation, medical treatment, and costs as well as payment of their wages while they are unable to work.
An employer is required to have assurances in place, so that employee benefits are paid in the event of an injury at work.
Most employers take out an insurance policy to cover them if an employee does have an injury at work and needs to make a claim.
It is also possible for some employers to be given self-insured status.
