Workers’ compensation deals with employment-related injuries. The laws are designed to ensure that employees are compensated for injuries arising out of and in the course of employment. In the United States, each state enacts its own workers’ compensation laws, whereas Federal statutes are limited to federal employees or those workers employed in some significant aspect of interstate commerce. This guide will provide you with a brief overview of how to do legal research on workers’ compensation at the University of Connecticut Law School library. Please start with the library’s online catalog to locate a specific item, or ask a reference librarian for help with in-depth research.
