Workers' Compensation or Not?
That is the Question.
The North Carolina Worker's Compensation Act is
designed to provide injured workers a quick
compensation mechanism while limiting the
employers financial liability for industrial accidents.
The North Carolina worker's Compensation Act is a
no-fault system providing limited compensation for
an employee's loss of earning capacity due to an
industrial accident, which is liberally construed in
favor of the worker--as far as it goes. The employee
does not have to prove the employer acted
negligently when seeking compensation for an
industrial accident or occupational disease, and he
may not file a lawsuit for damages against his
employer. On the other hand, the Act does not
require the employer to pay for an injured
employee's "pain and suffering", nor does it require
the employer to act as a general health and
accident insurer for all injuries of its employees.
