The worker’s compensation program provides income to employees who are injured on the job and pays medical expenses resulting from work oriented injury. It also pays benefits to the employees’ dependents in the event an employee is killed in the course or scope of his employment. Most, but not all, businesses with five or more employees must have workmen's compensation insurance. However, any business may carry this type of insurance.
