Who is Eligible for Benefits Under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act?

Under the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act, eligibility for benefits extends to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. The Act covers various types of workers, including full-time, part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees.

Here are some key points regarding eligibility:

  1. Employment Status: Eligible individuals must be classified as employees rather than independent contractors. Contractors typically do not qualify for workers' compensation benefits.

  2. Work-Related Injury or Illness: To be eligible for benefits, the injury or illness must have occurred in the course of employment. This includes both physical injuries resulting from accidents and occupational diseases caused by workplace conditions or exposure.

  3. Notification: Employees must promptly notify their employers about the work-related injury or illness, preferably in writing. Failing to report the incident within a certain time frame may impact eligibility for benefits.

  4. Time Limit: There is a statutory time limit for filing a workers' compensation claim in Virginia. Generally, the claim must be filed within two years from the date of the accident or within two years from the date of the last payment of compensation.

  5. Coverage Requirements: In Virginia, most employers with two or more employees are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. Coverage extends to eligible employees regardless of fault.
