Who Is Entitled to Workers’ Compensation?

In Mississippi, many workers are entitled to compensation from their employers when they are either hurt on the job or become sick due to a work-related cause. Most employers are required by the state to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to make sure their workers have access to the financial support they need.

Exceptions to this rule include:

  • Employers with fewer than five workers
  • Independent contractors
  • Volunteer positions
  • Housekeeping and babysitting jobs
  • Farming work
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Religious organizations

If an employer has workers’ compensation insurance, any on-the-job injury – whether minor or serious – is covered by the policy.

However, coverage may be denied if it is determined that the employee’s injuries:

  • Were self-inflicted
  • Occurred while the individual was not on the job or was in violation of company policy
  • Resulted from intoxication or illegal drug use

Benefits You Could Be Entitled to

Mississippi workers’ compensation benefits can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Wage replacement benefits
  • Compensation for permanent injuries
  • Costs for training for a new job
  • Wrongful death benefits to a deceased workers’ surviving family members
