Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on workers’ compensation. This course provides a comprehensive overview of workers’ compensation law. Though workers’ compensation law varies from state to state, the law discusses trends and general rules that apply throughout the country. Where the rules vary greatly from state to state, the course discusses the variances and provides examples how different states treat the issues.

This course is of moderate difficulty and some background in employment law (including the other LawShelf courses in employment law) is recommended.

The course begins with an overview of workers compensation and a discussion of the various elements of workers compensation claims.
