Workers' compensation is a system designed to provide benefits to employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their job. It's a form of insurance that employers are required to provide, and it can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs. In the United States, nearly all employers are required to provide workers' compensation insurance to their employees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2019, there were approximately 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry employers.
