Employer Information

Nearly all employers in Michigan are subject to the Workers' Disability Compensation Act. The law requires that every covered employer must provide some way of assuring that benefits are paid to its workers if they become injured while on the job. Most employers do this by purchasing an insurance policy from a private insurance company. However, some employers are granted self-insured status, and others join a group fund. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and the Michigan Business One Stop websites offer information on workers' compensation insurance coverage.

If a worker is injured on the job, you must ensure that reasonable and necessary medical treatment is provided promptly. Report all claims to your insurance carrier. Filing a form WC-100 with the Workers' Compensation Agency and your insurance carrier is required whenever there is disability exceeding seven consecutive days, death, or specific loss.
