Am I covered by the fund if I am an apprentice?

by Kara Dolan-West | Jan 14, 2015 | General Information

The General Assembly extended workers’ compensation coverage to apprentices engaged in formal training programs in 1961. The coverage was extended beyond apprentices in 1975 to cover persons engaged in pre-apprenticeship training programs, entry-level trainees, and journeyman trainees.

This means that if you have entered into a contract as an apprentice, an entry-level trainee or a journeyman trainee, or for apprentice training, you may be entilted to workers’ compensation benefits if you have been injured as a result of your position. Please contact the Bainbridge Firm for help gaining the benefits you deserve.
