What Kind of Benefits Are Provided by Workers’ Compensation?

The California workers’ compensation system offers three primary benefits to injured employees: payment of medical expenses, income replacement through temporary disability benefits and compensation for lasting injuries through permanent disability benefits.

Additional benefits are available for death and, in some cases, for permanent disabilities that prevent an employee from returning to work.

In addition, California law guarantees certain job protections to injured employees. Subject to certain limitations, an injured employee must be returned to the same or a comparable job after healing is completed if the employee is capable of resuming employment.
