Frequently Asked Questions
What is workers’ compensation?
Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault insurance plan which is required for every employer in the State of Mississippi with more than 5 employees except for charitable organizations and farmers. No-fault means that if you are injured at work you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if nobody did anything wrong to cause your injury.
What is covered?
Any injury is covered. It doesn’t matter if the injury is serious or not. All that matters is that the injury occurred on the job. Gradually developing ‘injuries’ like lung conditions from breathing in air contaminated on the work site or carpal tunnel syndrome that typically occurs over years of repetitive work with the hand(s) are usually covered. Work need not be the sole ’cause’ of an injury or disability, so long as it can be shown that the work contributed to it by way of aggravating a preexisting condition or accelerating a condition that would not have become disabling but for the work.
When does coverage start?
Coverage begins on the first day of employment. Coverage remains even if an injured employee is terminated or quits.
