Established in 1683 as part of the colonial province of East Jersey, today Middlesex County is home to significant higher education, healthcare, and biotechnology industries, including hosting the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University, Robert Wood Johnson University, and pharmaceutical companies such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Novo Nordisk, and Johnson & Johnson.
In New Jersey, any person who works for pay is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for a work-related injury. This includes part-time or seasonal workers, workers in a probationary period, teen employees, and undocumented workers. You are eligible for workers’ compensation even if you are injured on your first day of employment.
The workers’ compensation system is intended to guarantee certain defined benefits for an injured worker, paid out by the worker’s employer, regardless of who may have been at fault for the work injury. In exchange for this guaranteed compensation, a worker is typically barred from pursuing a personal injury claim against their employer for a work injury. An employer’s immunity from personal injury suit may be eliminated if the employer intentionally or recklessly causes the worker’s injury.
