Nearly all employees in Los Angeles are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Under the workers’ compensation system, employers agree to pay medical expenses and lost wages for an employee’s job-related injury or illness—even if the employee is at fault for his or her injuries. In exchange, the employee agrees not to sue his or her employer in court for damages.
