This WorkCompCentral Special Report looks closely at a vital but poorly understood link in caring for injured workers: how claims payers partner with occupational medicine clinics.

The Uncompensated Worker: California Case Study

Monday July 11, 2016

In the latest issue of our special report series titled, "The Uncompensated Worker," author Peter Rousmaniere takes a look at two injured workers, two different income levels and one big (bad) surprise for both! In many respects, Jose, an undocumented farmworker from Mexico, and Mike, a physical therapist at a mid-size home healthcare company, have little in common as part of California's vast labor force.

The Uncompensated Worker: Financial Impact of Work Comp on Households

Wednesday January 27, 2016

Known as the "Grand Bargain" between employers and workers, workers' compensation was designed to compensate employees who are unable to work due to an on-the-job injury. Each year, about a million workers miss at least one day of work because of a work-place injury, This report examines how an injured worker and his/her household are affected when a worker receives compensation for lost work days.

Depending on the state, the rules and regulations that dictate how much compensation an injured worker receives, and when, vary in 31 states, workers receive a take-home pay of 15% or more when they're injured on the job, and in half of the states, households with two median wage earners, one on work disability and the other working full time, cannot afford to sustain their basic budget. The realistic scenarios depicted in this report illustrate that injured workers in every state could, through no fault of their own, suffer financial hardship from a work injury.
