Workers' Compensation Publications

Workers' Compensation is an employer-financed, no-fault insurance that compensates employees who have been disabled due to a work-related injury or disease. The passage of Act 44, Workers' Compensation Reform Act of 1993, and Act 57, Reform Act of 1996, have led to major reductions in employer insurance rates while encouraging employers to provide safer working environments.
The Department of Labor and Industry, through the Bureau of Workers' Compensation, is responsible for the administration and maintenance of this program. Following is a list of publications (laws, regulations, newsletters, and reports) designed to provide Pennsylvania's employers with information regarding their rights and duties under PA's worker's compensation program.
