If your employer does not carry Workmens Comp can you get your own individual policy?

In most states the employer MUST carry Workmens Comp. It's the law. Check with your local wage and hour or whatever it's called in your state. Workmens Comp protects employees while on the job and pays for the medical costs when an accident occurs while at work. On the other hand, if you're talking about health insurance, employers are not required to carry medical policies for employees but many employers do because it is a good way to keep valuable employees from seeking other employment.

Can an employee collect pay and worker's comp benefits at the same time?

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. In the State of Nevada you only receive about 45 cents on the dollar compaired to what you would receive had you worked for your employer. * WCI benefits are paid to a worker when the person cannot perform the duties attributed to his or her job. The employee CANNOT receive regular pay and WCI benefits at the same time.

Where do you file for workman's compensation?

The Workmens Compensation claim is customarily opened by those in charge of administrating the policy at the place where you work. This may be "The Boss", a Benefits Coordinator, a Supervisor, or someone in the H.R. office. The beginning of your claim starts with an accident report, and is followed by a report by those commissioned with the duty to do an investigation at the jobsite, usually an "Accident Investigation Team" or similar entity. This constitutes the "opening" of your claim. Note: Your Employer is required to post certain fact sheets in public places where they can be seen, by law; and, Workmens Comp. information is included in this type of posting, along with what concerns discrimination, EEOP, and so forth. The Employer is NOT required to lead you by the hand through anything. This leaves the door open for unscrupulous agents of the employer to deliberately keep their "helpfulness" to a minimum in an unpublicized effort to minimize an employer's liabilities. If it is not mandatory for an employer's agent to tell you something which might help you in this process, and telling you might incur a perceived increase in liability upon the employer, then chances are that you won't hear it from them. If it is required by law that they tell you something, or that they proceed in a certain way to protect your rights, then such things are adhered to TO THE LETTER--- and NO further... It is important for you to DOCUMENT EVERYTHING, since what the employer documents is for their benefit and records-- not yours... An employer has three concentrations of focus when it comes to Workmens Compensation claims: 1) The Law 2) Liability 3) Your Welfare The order in which they are listed is the order in which they are prioritized. Workmens Compensation Insurance was put into effect to protect the worker. It needs to be understood that the entity from whom the worker is being protected is the employer; and, a small amount of wisdom is applicable in such a case: "Remember--- The 'Friend' to whom you speak may not be your Friend at all..."
