Michigan Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Worker’s Compensation Insurance

Michigan’s workers’ compensation system is in place to protect workers who are injured or killed on the job and those who have an occupational disease as a result of employment. Workers’ compensation also helps to protect employers by limiting their liability.
