Iowa Workers’ Compensation laws are in place for the benefit of Iowa workers who suffer injuries on the job. If you are injured on the job, your employer is obligated by law to provide you
- Medical treatment
- Payment for time off work
- Mileage to your medical appointments
- Payment for any permanent disability the injury caused
- Industrial disability benefits if your ability to find work is impaired
Your employer will not necessarily inform you of all of these obligations when you are injured.
