When workers in Massachusetts are injured, it is often in their best interest to return to work as soon as possible. However, when an employee suffers a serious injury or is temporarily disabled, this can be very difficult.

While this benefit is important, not all workers receive these benefits due to major companies taking steps to re-write their policies for paying workers' comp.
