Workers' Compensation Laws in Chino
California state law requires that any employer that employs at least one person must offer workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance helps to cover the medical expenses and lost wages for any employee who has sustained an injury while on the job. Full-time employees, part-time workers, seasonal employees, and even independent contractors all qualify for such benefits.
Frequent Types of Workplace Injuries
The California Commission of Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation recently released data demonstrating how overexertion and bodily reaction injuries account for 37% of all workplace injuries. Other common types of workplace injuries include: injuries resulting from contact with an object or equipment; injuries caused by falls, slips, and trips; injuries caused by exposure to harmful substances or chemicals; injuries caused by transportation accidents; injuries caused by other people or animals; and injuries resulting from fires and explosions.
