How Do I Know If My Employer Is Covered By Workers' Compensation?

The Pennsylvania Workers` Compensation Act covers nearly every worker. Employers must provide workers` compensation coverage for all of their employees, including seasonal and part­time workers. Non­profit corporations, unincorporated businesses, and even employers with only one employee, must comply with the Act`s requirements.

Federal civilian employees, railroad workers, longshoremen, shipyard and harbor workers are covered by other compensation laws.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
