Wisconsin worker’s compensation laws are designed to protect workers from financial strain after a work-related illness or injury occurs. When an injury qualifies for worker’s compensation, the injured worker’s employer (or the employer’s worker’s compensation insurance company) compensates the employee for injury-related medical expenses, two-thirds of the lost wages while medical treatment limits the employee at work, permanent losses of function from the injury, job re-education if the employee cannot return to the same job, and sometimes other costs related to the injury as well.
