New Worker Compensation Postings and Handouts Required in California

On September 23, 2010, the California Department of Workers' Compensation (DWC) mandated that all employers post an updated information poster and distribute pamphlets regarding workers' compensation to all employees who start work on or after October 8, 2010. In addition, all employers that have Medical Provider Networks (MPN), and those that are planning to change their MPN status, are required to post and distribute an additional MPN notice.

California Restaurants Learn: Workers' Compensation Insurance Is Essential.

Workers' compensation coverage is a substantial expense for many smaller restaurants, but essential (and required) for all employers. The workers' compensation system is a no-fault system that provides medical coverage, disability payments or compensation for employees injured or killed on the job. In exchange for this no-fault coverage, employees are generally not permitted to sue their employers for the tort of negligence in civil courts. Awards for disabling industrial injuries and death are typically significantly lower than what employees could recover if they were allowed to file a civil lawsuit.
