Qualifying for Workers' Compensation

Find Out If You Qualify: Call (661) 460-5557

In California, all employers are required by law to carry workers' compensation insurance. This includes employers with only one employee and even temporary or part-time employees. Virtually all workers in California are covered from the moment that they start the job, regardless of who was at fault for the injury. Employers are prohibited from retaliating against you or firing you for requesting workers' compensation benefits.

Eligibility requirements for workers' compensation benefits:

  • Your employer must carry workers' compensation insurance
  • You must be an employee of the business or individual (independent contractors do not qualify)
  • Your injury must be work-related (either sustained while on the job or while performing work-related activities)

To find out more about whether your injury or condition is eligible, talk to one of our Bakersfield workers' comp lawyers in a free consultation.

Workers' compensation insurance provides benefits to employees who have been injured either due to an accident or repeated exposure at work (such as carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive tasks). Workers' compensation coverage can include occupational diseases such as illnesses from exposure to toxic chemicals or some stress-related conditions caused by the nature of the job.
