The Economics of Workers' Compensation Insurance: A Virtual Workshop
Workers’ compensation is one of the oldest social insurance systems in the United States, with state-run programs dating back to the 1910s. Entirely state-designed and regulated, workers’ compensation insurance removes liability for workplace injuries and diseases from both employers and employees. While all states have workers’ compensation insurance systems, they are different in many aspects including wage replacement generosity, benefit duration, choice of the medical provider, and compensable injuries/diseases. These differences can alter the incentives faced by workers and employers, as well as the efficiency of the workers’ compensation system.
Please join us for this public virtual workshop that will bring together a small group of stakeholders and leading workers’ compensation researchers to discuss outcomes resulting from different workers’ compensation system policies.
