Workers' compensation is a critical form of insurance protection that compensates workers for medical costs and lost wages resulting from on-the-job injuries. While workers' compensation is important for all workers, it is absolutely essential for low-wage workers. NCLEJ is working to challenge unfair discrimination in worker compensation programs that exclude vulnerable low-wage workers in certain occupations from coverage. Feel free to contact us.
