West Virginia Workers Compensation Laws

Since the year 2000, a lot of changes have been introduced into West Virginia workers compensation laws in order to make the insurance program much stronger to protect the rights and interest of the workers against occupational injuries and illnesses. Though it is legally mandatory for all employers to carry adequate insurance coverage, there are a few employers who are still exempted from this requirement, such as an agricultural employer with less than five workers and a casual employer with less than three workers.
