Workers' compensation consists of a series of law in State of California which protect the rights of employees being injured at work. Under this law the employees will be protected for loss of wages and have their medical bills paid while they are being treated for their work injuries.
The law also provides for financial protection for the heirs and dependents of the employees who were killed as the result of their injuries at work (functioning as a form of life insurance with limited cap).
General damages for pain and suffering, and punitive damages for employer negligence, are generally not available in workers' compensation plans, and negligence is generally not an issue in the case. These laws were first enacted in Europe and Oceania, with the United States following shortly thereafter.
