L&I Claims: Workers’ & Employers’ Rights

Workers and employers have rights if a worker is injured on the job

Workers' rights

Employers' rights

  • No-fault workers' comp - Washington is a no-fault state for workers' compensation insurance. This means workers usually can't sue employers for on-the-job injuries.
  • Manage claims online - Businesses can log on to L&I's online Claim and Account Center to manage employees' claims.
  • Protests and appeals - If a business disagrees with the decision L&I makes on a claim, they can protest or appeal the decision.
