Since almost every working Californian is protected by Workers’ Compensation benefits, it is important that employers and employees alike have an understanding of Workers’ Compensation insurance and how it works.
The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) monitors the administration of workers’ compensation claims, and provides administrative and judicial services to assist in resolving disputes that arise in connection with claims for workers’ compensation benefits.
DWC’s mission is to minimize the adverse impact of work-related injuries on California employees and employers.
The California Department of Insurance (CDI) provides several tools to help employers who are shopping for workers’ compensation insurance or experiencing rating or underwriting problems.
