Workers’ Compensation (Non-Public Safety Employees)
Workers compensation benefits provide coverage for medical costs incurred when an employee has an on-the-job accident, resulting in personal injury. Additionally, workers compensation provides weekly payments in lieu of wages to employees who have been out of work for more than five days due to an on-the-job injury. These tax-free payments are set at a percentage of the weekly pay for employees.
111F (Police Officers & Firefighters Only)
For police officers and fire fighters there is an Injured on Duty state law that provides for tax-free payments of 100% of weekly pay.
