Understanding Workers’ Compensation
As an employer, it is important that you understand the basics of workers' compensation, but Signum will handle the heavy lifting for you.
Workers' compensation is a state-mandated, insurance program that provides medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs to employees who are injured or become ill while performing their job. This allows injured workers to obtain medical care and a portion of their lost wages while they are unable to work. Workers' compensation also pays death benefits to families of employees who are killed on the job. The workers' compensation wage and medical benefits vary by state. Workers' compensation applies to all employees, full-time and part-time, as well as others that have been hired to perform certain jobs.
Medical Treatment & Injury Reporting
If an employee is injured on the job, whether it appears to be a serious injury or not, business owners should always encourage the employee to immediately seek necessary medical treatment. Often, even what seems to be a small or insignificant injury can turn out to be very serious. It is better for both the injured employee and the business owner to be safe rather than sorry!
If an injury or illness does occur on the job, Signum is there to assist with the entire process. Signum works with you to properly file the claims, communicate with insurance companies, as well as work with the investigators to ensure that workers' compensation claims are legitimate and not fraudulent.
