Whether that worker is documented or undocumented, he or she has the right to fair compensation.  Legal status should have no part of the equation when it comes to a person being injured and needing help with medical bills, lost wages and other ramifications of a work injury.

Undocumented Workers’ Compensation Claims Are Protected by Law

Although Texas’ employment laws do not make workers’ compensation insurance mandatory, many employers do choose to carry it.  It exists to protect all workers in the event of on-the-job injuries.  The Texas Workers’ Compensation Act requires that medical benefits and income replacement benefits be provided for injured workers regardless of their legal status.  Employers and insurance companies cannot use lack of citizenship or legal status as a reason for denying benefits.
