  • Workman's Compensation Insurance is specifically for work related injuries. State laws control the way WCI is regulated, meaning the requirements that are needed to collect a claim, the amount of the claim and so forth. Not all employer's are required to participate in WCI therefore not all employee's would have access to the program.

  • In the UK an employer is responsible for injuries caused in the workplace if the employer was in some way negligent or breached other UK regulations. For example - if a workman hurt his foot due to a defective work machine - the employer would be liable to pay compensation.

Yes, this is completely legal. If you are hurt on a job you are entitled to workman's compensation as long as you are in some way hurt, even if you could continue to do the job.

However if you are hurt in one job and cannot perform the other, whether you get workman's compensation for the injury or not will not make a difference if you get fired from your other job or not because you cannot do it.

You don't; unless you have people working for you that could get hurt. If you do have people working for you then you need it in case someone gets hurt while they are working.

You could fight it, but you'll probably lose. Since you've failed the blood test then you zapped yourself! Drugs and work just don't mix.

If you were on a cold medication and you failed a blood test then you might have had a chance. Marcy
