Workers’ compensation is defined by a set of rules determined by each state which outlines benefits to employees who have sustained work-related injuries/illnesses. The laws provide for payment of medical bills for treatment due to such injuries and reasonable income benefits for employees who may lose time from work. Employees who are seriously injured on the job may be entitled to additional benefits.
Funds for these benefits are provided by TAG through its workers’ compensation claims administrator, as required by law. If you should be injured on the job, or suffer a work related disability, certain procedures must be followed to ensure that you receive your benefits quickly. Contact TAG immediately and follow the procedures outlined under the Injuries on the Job section within this handbook.
TAG provides workers’ compensation benefits required by law to every injured employee. However, if we determine that any employee has provided falsified information to TAG, to the physician, or to the claims administrator for the purpose of fraudulently obtaining workers’ compensation benefits, we will take the strongest possible action to prosecute that employee to the fullest extent of the law.
