If you suffer an injury at your job, report it to your supervisor or employer, and seek medical treatment. California’s worker’s compensation laws protect workers that are hurt while working, and your employer is legally required to pay for your necessary medical expenses.
Some workers do not know what rights they have when they are hurt while working. They may worry that their employer will fire them or otherwise retaliate against them for filing a claim for workers’ compensation. California law protects you for any retaliation in these situations, and you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, even if you are fully or partially at fault for the accident that caused your injury.
