Am I covered?

Every Pennsylvania employer must comply with the Act’s requirement and provide Workers’ Compensation coverage for all of their employees, including seasonal and part-time workers. This includes non-profit corporations, unincorporated businesses, and even employers with only one employee. Even if you are a volunteer (such as a volunteer firefighter or EMT) you can be covered under the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act. Some Pennsylvania employees are covered by other compensation laws, including federal civilian employees, railroad workers, longshoremen, and shipyard and harbor workers. Other employees who may not be covered by the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act are agricultural laborers, casual employees, domestics and employees who have been granted a personal religious exemption from the Act.
