Workers’ Compensation is a no-fault liability insurance program that compensates employees with payment of medical and rehabilitation costs plus lost income for injury, illness, disability, or death resulting from accidents arising out of and in the course of employment. Typically state-sponsored plans, Workers’ Compensation benefits must be integrated with private-plan benefits when determining lost wages
