Restaurant employees who suffer serious injuries while they are at work have the right to file a claim for worker’ compensation benefits. It doesn’t matter if the restaurant worker is a line-cook, chef, janitor, dishwasher, or cashier, every person who is employed by a restaurant owner can file a workers’ compensation claim for their work-related injuries.
Working in a restaurant can be dangerous, and there many different risks that can cause employee injuries. Because of these risks, restaurant business owners are required by state and federal law to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover any work related injuries that their employees might sustain.
