Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you sustained an injury at work, or you contracted an occupational illness, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits under Wisconsin law. This type of compensation is meant to provide financial relief to employees who have suffered injuries or illnesses at work.

Workers' compensation can help pay for:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical bills
  • Disability-related expenses

Workers' Comp Requirements in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, employers with more than 3 employees must have workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Employers with less than 3 employees must have workers’ compensation insurance if they pay $500 or more in wages in any quarter of the calendar year. For farm workers, employers who have 6 or more employees for at least 20 calendar days each year are required to carry workers' compensation insurance.

The following groups are all considered employees and are therefore covered under workers' comp:

  • Part-time employees
  • Full-time employees
  • Family members
  • Minors
  • Corporate officers

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Workers' Comp Claims in Wisconsin?

If you have been injured on the job, it is important to notify your employer within 30 days. For occupational diseases, you have 30 days from the date you discover the disability to notify your employer. However, the final statute of limitations for workers' comp claims in Wisconsin is 2 years. If you did not know about the injury early on, you may still be able to receive compensation as long as you notify your employer within 2 years from the date of the accident.
