Overview

The Worker's Compensation Act (WKC-1-P) serves as the foundation for the worker's compensation system. The Act is instrumental to maintaining an effective and efficient system.

The Wisconsin Worker's Compensation Act is unique in that amendments are formulated through a collaborative process that involves the primary stakeholders of the system - labor, management, insurers, medical providers, legislators and staff. This process yields an Act that provides a stable and widely supported worker's compensation system.
