- Workers’ Compensation was set up for a specific purpose, to provide compensation for workers who are injured and who are unable to work at a particular point in their lives, maybe even permanently. But as with any program where there is money involved, it has been twisted (or perverted if you would) into something that represents a money making machine but who does it benefit?
Consider it from all sides as the tax payers (you), the injured worker, and the employer. Should the fees be capped? Should cases be categorized insofar as settlement amount? What should be different, if anything? Back up your opinions with references and in-text citations to course readings, lectures or external articles.
