FAQ

I received Worker's Compensation in 2015, how could I find out how much I received in payments for filling out the FAFSA?
US workers compensation insurance carriers, third party claims administrators and self insureds all keep detailed records on how much they have paid on a  given claim. It is broken down into medical payments and indemnity payments and claim expenses.For FAFSA's purposes , you want the indemnity payments which consists of lost time benefits and any settlement or award for your wage loss or disability.If you received a settlement or an award that was paid in a lump sum, it may have been a blend of medical and indemnity which makes it harder to break into accurate components. If there was a settlement, the document itself may recite how much was allocated to disability , disputed lost time, etc.Usually when a person has a lawyer, the carrier will not  ( is ethically prohibited , actually) from talking directly to the claimant. However,  for administrative  things, the claim adjuster should be willing to give you the information needed. If the case is being litigated, your lawyers office needs to make the call. Regardless, it is simple and easy to retrieve on the carrier's end.There will not be a 1099 or W2. Also, worker's compensation benefits are not  considered income under the Internal Revenue Code, so look carefully at the way FAFSA asks the question- you may not need this after all.

Do un-contracted workers have to fill out IRS W4 form?
I have no idea what an “un-contracted worker” is. I am not familiar with that term.Employees working in the U.S. complete a Form W-4.Independent contractors in the U.S. do not. Instead, they usually complete a Form W-9.If unclear on the difference between an employee or an independent contractor, see Independent Contractor Self Employed or Employee
Why does it take Workers Compensation to pay out for a claim?
I am only admitted to the PA Bar, so, my answer is based upon Pennsylvania Law.Basically, most states have Workers Compensation laws which provide that in exchange for employer immunity from suit for on-the-job injuries, an employee is guaranteed coverage for medical payments and wage loss (but usually not pain and suffering) regardless of whether the on-the-job injury is their fault or not.If an employee is injured on the job, they are required to report the injury to the appropriate workers compensation carrier which will process and pay the claim.And woe be to the employer who foregoes workers compensation coverage for their employees. Not a pretty picture. Penalties. Officer liability.
Are salaried workers at large US corporations required to fill out a time sheet?
Yes this is true for everyone. Why would that be if your pay does not depend on it?The timesheet might or might not feed into the Paid Time Off (PTO) Tracking system so your vacation days are subtracted correctly for each day taken. In many companies, there is a separate PTO system.In an engineering job certain expense are amortized against different accounts. Time you spend on Research & Development has different tax consequences for the company. Some expenses are taken immediately while others have a multi-year write-off procedure. Luckily, none of this is your responsibility, just make sure you know how to operate the timesheet tracking system.In one instance, we had to track number of days Training to match an overall company goal of perhaps 5 training days per year.
How does workers compensation work? Does the incident have to be at work while you are clocked out or when you are clocked in?
How does workers compensation work? Does the incident have to be at work while you are clocked out or when you are clocked in?Workers compensation (WC) works a little bit differently in each state, as WC benefits are authorized by state statutes.The very basic structure of WC is that, for an incident to be found compensable (payable), it must be arising out of and in the the course of employment. This means that just because you get a headache while at work, while it may have occurred in the course of your employment, it did not arise out of your employment. However, if you are running to your desk to answer your phone, and you trip and fall and sustain injuries, that would most likely be compensable.If you have a seizure at work because you are epileptic, not compensable. If, while you have a seizure at work, you fall and hit your head on your desk and sustain a head injury, that head injury is likely compensable. (If you have a seizure and fall to the floor, hitting your head on the floor, that’s not compensable.)Being clocked in/clocked out probably doesn’t have a significant impact on whether an injury would be covered, but this would probably depend on the case law in your state. It is more important to discuss what you were doing when the injury occurred. If you were actually doing something work-related, something your boss told you to do, something that was a routine part of your day, you are likely covered.However, if you were clocked in, and were doing something definitely NOT work related - having an argument with a coworker, engaging in horseplay, sitting in your car in the parking lot, etc., it may not be covered. There are exceptions, most notably things that fall under “personal comfort” which includes using the bathroom, getting a drink of water, and similar activities, any injuries are likely covered.WC benefits are expanded for “traveling employees” - people on business travel, going to conferences, sales calls, etc.If you have specific questions pertaining to yourself and your work activities, the best choice would be to discuss it with an attorney who handles workers compensation cases in your state. They will know the specific statute and case law that pertains to your situation.
Have you ever gotten burnt really bad at work and it was your co-worker’s fault? If so, how would workers’ compensation work out?
If you are injured on the job workers compensation will cover the medical expenses and pay temporary disability until you return to work or your disability is deemed permanent. Whose fault caused the injury is not a consideration in these payments, unless the injured person was engaged in specifically prohibited activity, “horseplay” for example. In general, workers comp is “no fault” insurance.
