Any employer in Arizona with one or more employee’s working part-time or full are required to have insurance that covers worker’s compensation. This insurance supplies injured workers with compensations if they get hurt, sick, or are temporarily disabled while at work. If you get hurt, or become ill while at work it’s important to let your employer know immediately. They’re required to report your injury or illness to their insurance company and the Industrial Commission of Arizona.
Worker’s compensation was setup to protect both employees and employers from financial hardship after an accident at work. The law guarantees compensation to employee’s, and also keeps employer’s from facing unnecessary lawsuits. Each state pays a different rate to injured employee’s. If you have questions regarding workers’ compensation laws in Arizona then our experienced employment law team is available to help.
