Human Resources Executive Education attempts to provide helpful up-to-date information about workers' compensation. We offer:
This is a table with links to the 50 State Workers' compensation agencies. Additional links are included for the District of Columbia, Federal employees and the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Acts as well.
In addition to link to the agencies' home pages we have attempted where possible to provide links to publications that best describes how the system works in each state. Unfortunately there is great variation in th quality of the publications that states make available
While every attempt has been made to keep these links up-to-date, states are continually making changes to their sites. If you find links that are no longer valid please email the MSU Human Resources Executive Education webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently a number of issues have arisen concerning the relationship between Medicare and Workers' Compensation. We offer here what we hope will be some helpful resources.
