Training Overview

Does Workers’ Compensation cover COVID-19? See case studies of how to handle employee claims.

As the Delta variant aggressively infects employees across the country, Workers’ Compensation cases are increasing dramatically, with some states reporting 200–300% monthly growth during the summer.

Under OSHA and other laws, you have a legal duty to keep employees safe and healthy while at work. Some cases of COVID-19 contracted in the workplace become Workers’ Compensation claims while others do not, depending on the state, situation, and practices.
