Workers compensation is a state regulated insurance program. It is designed to provide employees with medical benefits in the event they are injured or become ill due to a work-related incident. Every state has their own specific rules and regulations regarding workers compensation insurance. In the state of Texas, private employers can elect whether or not to offer workers compensation insurance to their employees. The state does not make it mandatory for private employers.
Employees have the right to file for workers compensation. It can help replace a portion of their lost wages if they are injured on the job or suffer from a work-related illness. You can find more information under Title 5, subtitle A , Labor Code here.
