Best Answer

You should be treated like any other employee when on WC. If others do, you do. If not, I don't know why you would be singled out.

NO you can not lose your pay. If you are back to work light duty and need to see the work comp doctor or therapy then you receive your pay and work comp * If you are out of work due to an injury you WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR REGULAR PAYCHECK from your employer. In a nut shell; you go to work, your employer pays you. If you cannot go to work due to a workmens comp claim you will have to file for comp from the State or the insurer.

The employee CANNOT receive regular pay and WCI benefits at the same time.

Workers compensation benefits are governed by the law of the state in which payments are due. As such, the duration of payments vary.

Does a driver who owns his dump truck have to buy workmans comp or allow the contractor to take it out of his pay?

Workman's Comp is for employees. If you are the owner and operator, you need standard health insurance. Health insurance won't pay for your lost wages, won't pay survivor benefits, and if you receive a serious injury, who will pay for your health insurance? Comp has lifetime medical benefits for injuries, and it doesn't depend on future premiums. A less expensive option is Occupational Accident and Contingent Liability - they aren't the same as Comp, but they can meet your needs. Talk to your independent insurance agent and your (General) Contractor. Also, many states are "ladder states," meaning liability goes up the ladder until someone can pay, so your (General) Contractor is probably right in requiring you to either have Comp or take it out of your pay so he can carry it for you. Some states REQUIRE him to do this.

Yes. Under the Workers Comp Statute - at least in Michigan, any condition that is caused by, accelerated, or aggrevated by your employment, is compensible. You merely have to have a doctor indicate that your condition is a work related repetitive action injury. If your employer won't pay you workers comp benefits, you can initiate a claim against him. You are entitled to time lost from work, all out-of-pocket medical expenses, and mileage to and from your doctor's appointments.
