Workers' compensation (or workers' comp, as you may have heard it called) is governed by Alabama's Workers' Compensation Law (Code of Alabama Section 25 5 1 through 25 5 340) and by a variety of federal statutes which provide for financial compensation to employees or their dependents in the event of employment related accidents and diseases. These statutorily prescribed benefits enable the injured worker to receive compensation without initiating legal action against his or her employer and help encourage safety in the workplace. Workers' comp is compulsory, meaning that employers are required to provide worker's compensation insurance for their employees. Worker's compensation insurance may be provided through a private insurance carrier, or employers may self-insure. Waivers are not permitted.
