Can You Receive Workers’ Compensation as a Part-time Employee?
Employers offer workers’ compensation to full-time employees who get hurt on the job, but what about part-time employees? Can they receive workers’ compensation? Legally, all workers are entitled to workers’ compensation regardless of full-time or part-time status.
One of the most common employee benefits is wage loss benefits. Wage loss benefits compensate employees who have been injured on the job. Employees can receive compensation for wage loss, but the amount depends if the employee was able to return to work or his wages before and after the loss.
