The California Workers' Compensation Law establishes in all, except certain, designated employments, an exclusive system of compensation for injuries, or death to employees arising out of and in the course of their employment and not caused by the employee's intoxication or intentionally self-inflicted injury.

The California Workers' Compensation Law provides the broadest coverage of employment and benefits in the nation.  Virtually every employer and employee within the state of California is subject to the compulsory provisions of its workers' compensation law.  Every type of legal entity may be an employer: individuals, partnerships, corporations, associations, the state, counties, cities, special purpose or taxing districts and other agencies.  The law applies with equal force to citizens and resident aliens.

The Act provides for medical treatment, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation benefits, medical benefits, and death benefits.  The benefits are funded through insurance or through self-funding by qualified employers.  Benefits are administered through a process of self-administration with a right of appeal to the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board, the California Appellate Courts and the California Supreme Court.  The law also provides for preventive measures in the form of safety laws and administrative rules.The law is frequently liberally construed in favor of providing benefits.This workbook provides an overview to Workers' Compensation including benefits, procedures, administration, penalities, third party liability and employer responsbilities.
