Workers’ Compensation systems are administered on a state-by-state basis, with a state governing board overseeing various public and private combinations of Workers’ Compensation systems.
Workers’ Compensation covers injuries that occur in the actual workplace, or anywhere the employee is acting in the “course and scope” of employment. In addition to accidents, many of these policies cover injuries or disabilities employees may sustain from events that occur while they are at work.
Depending on state statutes, this insurance will also cover certain illnesses and occupational diseases that employees suffer from due to their employment.

Injuries not covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance
While generally injuries or illnesses that develop on the job are covered, there are exceptions. Examples of exceptions include injuries that occur while not on the job, due to actions that violate company policy, or while an employee is committing a crime.
