EMPLOYERS® - Connecticut
Connecticut is known as the Nutmeg State, and is the
southernmost state in New England.
Connecticut’s Workers’ Compensation Act requires that businesses provide
workers’ compensation coverage to their employees. Through this no-fault system, employees
receive wage replacement benefits and medical treatment for work-related
injuries and illnesses. In exchange,
employers receive assurance that the workers’ compensation system is the exclusive
remedy available to injured workers .1
The amount of wage-loss and indemnity benefits is dependent
on the degree of disability, its duration, and the body part affected (in the
case of partial disability). In most
cases, the compensation rate is based on the employee’s average weekly wage for
the 52 weeks immediately preceding the injury or illness.2
EMPLOYERS offers quality, cost-effective workers’
compensation insurance to employers in Connecticut, covering small businesses
in Hartford, New Haven, and throughout Connecticut.
