One of the most important aspects of owning a business is making sure that your employees are protected in any situation. Having the right worker’s compensation policy is the best way to provide that protection. Since the start of worker’s compensation, there have been many laws passed to better protect employees, including:
- The Federal Employment Compensation Act, which provided worker’s compensation coverage for all non-military, federal employees.
- The Merchant Marine Act, also known as the Jones Act, which provides all seamen with protection in case of employer negligence.
- The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, which provided worker’s compensation coverage to specific employees of private maritime employers.
- The Black Lung Benefits Act, which requires liable mine operators to provide disability payments for employees who suffer from “black lung.”
