Workers Compensation began in Mississppi in 1948. What does Workers Compensation in Mississippi Cover ?

 

If an employer has less than five employees, they can voluntarily provide the coverage to those employees, but they don’t have to. Domestic and farm workers do not have to be covered.Employees of certain non profits organizations, charities, religious groups, and cultural groups do not have to be covered. Federal employees are not covered and those transportation and maritime employees covered by federal compensation are not covered by Mississippi law.                                                                                                          

Mississippi law states that if a person is intoxicated and that intoxication causes the injury they are not eligible

Benefits cannot exceed more than two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly pay. They also cannot continue more than 450 weeks. Worker’s Compensation benefits are tax free. If you have social security benefits, they may be affected by your worker’s compensation. Also if you get worker’s compensation and social security benefits both, the total amount of benefits that you receive cannot exceed 80 percent of your average weekly check before you became disabled.
